It's been fun watching third and fourth graders dive right into this penguin work. The students began with by completing a rough draft to get their ideas down on paper. I was interested to see what they already knew. We took a break to watch some lively penguin videos, looked at some photos of penguins, and did some guided drawings as well. Then, kids took their ideas to a large (18X24) piece of paper. They drew the outline with a light colored chalk then painted in the details. Beaks and feet were colored with chalk pastels. We planned to cut these guys out and place them on a snowy landscape. But now I'm thinking they might look cute as a free-standing flock that could roam around the school. Yes, I think that could be interesting. I'll let you know what we decide.
