Did you know a koala is not a bear? First graders discovered that koalas actually belong to the marsupial family. This family of animals is special because they have a pouch to help carry their young. Last time we learned about Australian Art through our "Aboriginal Snake" project (here is a link to the project I borrowed from Jamestown's blog). For this project, we stayed in Australia to learn about this famous marsupial.
Learning Goals: I can...
- Tell about koalas
- Use layered paint
- Use paint techniques to create texture and smooth lines
