Zoo, Kindergarten

The little kindergartners just had a field trip to the zoo. They were so excited. When they got back, they wanted to tell me all about their trip. This was the perfect time to create zoo pictures.

This project was very simple. Basically, I had the students draw the animals they had seen at the zoo. Then I had the students outline all of their pencil lines in black marker. The coloring was done with oil pastels. Finally, students used yarn to lace the fence onto the drawing. The lacing was the hardest part. They needed a lot of instruction for this part.

A few days ago, I had planned to just do a zoo drawing with my students. The other day, I found the idea for the yarn part of this project on Mini Matisse, which was a perfect way to make the project a little more special. I just LOVE the results of this project.
