As part of our bug unit, we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, and worked on a collaborative class project:
Working in pairs, students painted glue onto a pre-cut oval.
They placed tissue paper squares onto the glue, overlapping the pieces as they went.
These ovals made up the caterpillar's body.
A red circle with red tissue paper was used for its head.
Two longer strips & blue tissue paper were used as the antennae.
I posted here about our previous art lesson on the colour wheel.
The pictures are now hanging up on the bulletin board:
