Mixed Breed Animals, 2nd Grade

In this project, we looked at drawings of "Mixed Breed Animals" from the Middle Ages. They were told to choose 2-3 animals and combine them. To help the students with this, I brought in lots of photos of real animals. Having photos to look at really does help them a lot. After everything was drawn in pencil, I had them color everything with watercolor pencils. My students love these, they always think it is magic when water is brushed on top and it turns to paint.
