|Observational drawing from a huhu beetle photo|
The children drew the huhu beetle twice, once with pencil, then larger with black crayon. I think the repetition helps them remember the shapes and details.
They cut symmetrical wings, a body and a head from wallpaper. They stuck these to their page and added all the huhu beetle details using vivid markers.
I gave them little sticks to use for legs etc, if they wanted them.
