On a sheet of A4 paper children will draw part of a chosen rainforest creature and use mark making techniques we have taught them in school to add detail. Close observation and attention to the finer details will be the key to success.
Note to parents
Before the children start the art task, lead them to watch a clip on youtube called “Austins Butterfly.” They have seen this in school but it’s an excellent teaching tool and will do no harm to watch it again. This will help you in supporting your children.
First google “Layers of the rainforest” to find out about them prior to our lesson in school. Draw their own representation of them and label each layer. They can use materials to collage their picture or colouring pencils, water colours or just mark making. No felt pens please.
This project should be completed and handed in by Wednesday 5th May.
