Giraffes, 2nd Grade

Second graders created these really fun giraffes this week. We began by looking at the artwork of Betsey Fowler, a really cool artist who paints many African animals. I found this lesson on the 2 Soul Sister's Blog.

I showed students step by step how to draw the giraffe. Then, students outlined everything with a black crayon. Lastly, we used watercolors to paint our giraffes. Students loved choosing wild crazy colors for the giraffe.
