Drawing and painting
Five year olds.
I drew some simple geometric shapes on the board and asked the children to use them to design lots of different birds. They filled a page with birds using a black crayon. They chose their favorite and cut it out. They copied this onto a new page and coloured them using water colour paint. They cut them out and put them on a tree that a few early finishers had drawn. The next bird they drew was done with a marker and water colour paint. They cut them out and chose a coloured paper for the back ground.
