Here is an art activity to go along with Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, a book we've been using in class to correspond with our 5 Senses theme. This art activity was led by a parent volunteer/former teacher.
Last month my students covered a large white sheet of paper using two shades of brown paint. They proceeded to move the paint around using a variety of textured items. The sheets ended up like this:
Templates were traced onto the back of the paper: 2 hind legs, 2 front legs, a body, and a head.
Students cut out the pieces and arranged them to create brown bear.
They added some grass to the bottom of a sheet of paper
and glued their bears onto the new page
Using pastels, they added some details- eyes and a nose. They used extra scraps of the brown painted paper to make the bear's ears and tail.
Here are some of their creations
(some pictures are before the ears & tails were added, and some after)
Thank you Mrs. J! What a great display!
