1st Grade: Owls
First graders studied primary and secondary colors. They reviewed red + yellow =orange! We also talked about shape and line.
Students had a chance to practice line, shape and color in this awesome project!
We did a step by step first of drawing a large owl on 12 x 18 blue paper. Students used black oil pastel to draw. We also drew the branch and leaves.
Then, students added color with red chalk first (inner contour). Then, yellow was added, making the orange in between. Ears, wings and feet could be any warm colored chalk pastel. I encouraged orange colored beaks. Students used white chalk for the eye. Then, black oil pastel was added for the inner circle. This was tricky for students, as they wanted to do the black first, but I gave lots of reminders for the white first.
Students created "feathers" with curvy line with black oil pastel. They added stars/moon with white oil pastel. I think this was a great project for listening skills/understanding/following directions. Also reviewed secondary color, line, shape. A great way to begin first grade! I did laminate all of these!
Amazing owls first grade!
