Pat Melchior from Binney and Smith sent me this Rousseau Lesson idea link:
I can see lots of different ways to do this lesson - with different media.
Student draw one animal close up - add animal patterns. Color with choice of
media - cut out and glue to another color of paper. Then hide with leaf
cutouts. Students can share leaf patterns for variety. It would be fund to
even make some leaves 3 D (3-Do's). Lots of possibilities.
I've never played around on the Crayola site. It is MUST SEE site especially
for elementary teachers.
Here is more Science fun:
Explore what all a nose will do - then design your own 3-D animal nose -
glue to an animal face and have a Nose Store Display for animals to get a
new nose. Lots of science here - talking about sense of smell - how noses
work - animal adaptations - and so forth. Kids would love it!
