The 4th graders at Westside Elementary spent 5 days working on animal magazine mosaics. I read a handful of books by Jan Brett and we studied her illustrations. The 4th graders chose an animal to study then drew it on a recycled book page. Once the animals were drawn in pencil, they were traced with Sharpie and watercolored.
They painted the outline for the animal's habitat in black paint with a brown paper grocery bag cut into a rectangle and then started filling in the spaces with cut out magazine pages.
Here are some of their finished projects.
