This is a great go to lesson for any grade. It involves minimal materials and can go in a number of directions. Squiggle Animals are inspired by artist Alex Beard. I start by drawing a random squiggle line on my student's paper with a thick black marker. The student is then to turn their paper in all different directiosn to see what kind of animal the squiggle can inspire. They draw details and create a background. I try to discourage students from making snakes- too obvious.
