For this lesson we read Leo Lionni books. Our favorite was “Nicolas, where have you been?” We spent time painting our own custom papers, tracing shapes, cutting them out, and glueing them together. When we were done each student had created a creature. I provided students with tracers to make alligators, birds, rabbits, mice, frogs, fish, all characters from the books we read. Each student then created a place for their creature.
