Crouching Tigers

Students looked at the jungle paintings of Henri Rousseau and Pierre Maxo.  I showed them how to draw a tiger step by step (tiger instructions were borrowed from artprojectsforkids.org)  They drew and colored them in one class.  The second week we read "Rumble in the Jungle" and discussed what you might see in a jungle- plants, insects, animals...  On a seperate piece of paper students traced the shape of tall grass.  They then used oil pastels to add jungle details.

  1. Haley these are so good! I bet your 1st graders loved working with oil pastels as much as mine did. They oohed and ahhed over them when we made our Thiebaud cakes. Check out my blog at:
