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

  1. What a great lesson! I love how the koalas turned out! I hope to do something similar during our study of the book "Koala Lou."
    Thanks for sharing!
