Welcome to Lines, Dots, and Doodles. This is the place for students, parents, and teachers to find out what has been going on in my art class.

Chinese Dragons, 4th Grade

Recently, my fourth graders have been reading Chinese stories for their Language Arts class. Therefore, this was a wonderful time to do a Chinese Dragon lesson. Before beginning this lesson, we discuss the differences between Chinese and Medieval Dragons. We look at pictures of both, and compare and contrast them. This would also be a wonderful lesson to do for the Chinese New Years.
I have done this lesson several times before, but originally, I found this lesson on The Incredible Art Department. If you click on the link, there are wonderfully detailed instructions for this project.
All kids LOVE dragons, so this project is a hit every time. They look really cool on the walls too.


  1. Cool! Almost 200 followers we'll have to have a party!

  2. I know!, I can't believe I have almost 200 followers. Hmm... I wonder what a blog party would look like? I will have to think of something fun.

  3. These are great! That's for sharing them!
