Hey Jen! I'm Jen too. I was looking through some of your posts. Such wonderful projects. I am now welcoming myself to join in on your blog and all your blogging creations to come!!
Did you let the students cut out the body of the owl so they all look different, or did you already have the body cut out, and they did the rest? I am not sure how much of the owl I need to prep. or just let the students go at it so each one is unique to each child. Thanks!
The students drew the body of their owl and cut them out all on their own. Students were to decide if they wanted their owl to have a U shape or a V shape body. Students were to draw the letter as big as they could on the paper. Then I told them to make two pointy mountains on each side (at the top opening for the ears). Then a line to connect the top together. By breaking it down by a letter the students really grasp the concept. This is a really fun project. The kids will love it. Oh and the leaves. I do like how the real leaves look but the leaves are so fragile. I don't think many survived the bus ride home. I hope this helps!
I can't wait to try this. We are just starting an owl/animal growth and change unit and I am super excited to do this art project :)
Fantastic idea.....I'll be using it this week! Autumn in Australia. Thanks
