icosahedron





Drawing zoo animals,
Six year olds.
We brainstormed all the zoo animals the children could think of. They knew a lot! They each drew a few on a big page and chose one to draw with pen on a triangle shaped page. I had some animal books on hand for them to look at but no one used them, as they were all buzzing with ideas. They coloured the animals with coloured pencil. They used layers of colours which added interest and helped to cover the area with colour. The triangle fitted onto a circle, with the points just touching the sides of the circle. The left over circle was folded up and attached to another circle. I mounted them randomly on the wall. They look very interesting.
The ideas for this lesson came from http://thepaintbrushgoesspottie.blogspot.co.nz/It could be used in a variety of ways.
