Calligrams, 4th Grade
Calligrams are a type of poem where words are arranged into an image. For this lesson, I had my students choose an animal to turn into a calligram. Students drew the picture first, and then used colored pencils to add words. In this project, students could not color in the traditional way. Instead, students had to add color by using small words.
This project was time consuming, but it turned out great!
