Mixed Up Animals- 2nd Grade
This is a project my second graders always love. For this project, I handed out lots of photos of animals. Then I told students to choose three of them. The students were to take those three animals and combine them into one Very Mixed Up Animal. I have posted on this project before, but I just love the results every time. To begin, I had the students draw their animal in pencil. Students then drew the habitat which the animal lives. I tell them that it could live anywhere, even space. After this, students outline everything with a black crayon. The animals were colored with oil pastel, and the background painted with water colors. This project is perfect for second grade. It really works well with their wild imaginations! :)
