No zebras or flamingos here! October 24, 2013

The first graders were challenged to draw and paint animals that are from Massachusetts.  After learning about cave art, the students noticed that many caves depicted the same kinds of animals.  Why?  Because that’s all that the cave men/women saw and encountered in their daily lives.  So the 1st graders came up with animals that they could encounter in Massachusetts: rabbits, cats, dogs, squirrels, mice, birds, farm animals, whales, sharks, fish, etc.   Students first sketched 4 animals, then chose 1 to enlarge and paint with shades of brown.

This week, they will combine forces and create group murals using these animals!
