Carrie's lesson 7-8 yr olds
We started with observational drawings of native birds that could be collaged into the composition later in the day. We were limited for time today as reading and maths were still included in the timetable.
Next was preparing a background of wax rubbings with blue/ yellow dye.
The third stage involved designing a bird house for their native bird, which was to sit in a tree. The designs ranged from basic box with various colours to houses with different levels and connecting slides!
The various elements were cut out, positioned and glued to the background.
The results looked great and everyone was pleased with their finished art.
