1st Grade: Dino Art
1st graders listned to me read the book What if the Dinosaurs Came Back by Bernard Most. We looked for shapes in the illustrations. This is a really great book that is very imaginative. 1st Graders imagined what life would be like if dinosaurs came back and lived on earth in 2014. Students drew a setting with Sharpie marker on 12" x 18" paper. During the next art class, I did a step by step of a dinosaur with them. Student could draw a brontosaurus, a T-rex, or a Plesiosaurus. Students added line designs to their dinosaurs (which were done on colored paper). Students cut and glued them onto the background.
These came out very fun!
