Deep Space Sparkle. I really enjoyed this lesson because it offered a variety of techniques and materials. I first gave students a 12x18 piece of white drawing paper. Students folded the paper into 8 sections. Students drew different designs in each rectangle using crayons. Then students used water colors to paint the remainder of the rectangles. The painted paper was used for the birds.
I offered students the option to trace the birds or create their own. I created tracers for the birds in the handout below.
