Animal Hide Drawings


Is that gross or cool? I thought cool. And of course I forgot to show them this picture of me with an animal hide painting from my trip to Chicago this summer, so you get to see it now.

How awesome is this? These things are huge!
1st grade carefully tore paper into the "animal hide" shape and used oil pastels to create images. We used Anasazi symbols to tell a story. Then we used hole punchers and yarn to add borders. Their tiny 1st grade hands really got a fine-motors work out with this one! But they were troopers and pushed through to create these!
