The Third Grade is for the Birds

The third grade artists started this bird unit looking at John Audubon's work.  We also used the iPads to look up birds online at the Cornell University Orinthology Lab. We studied the work of Charley Harper, a nice contrast to Audubon's realism. We tied in poetry with the poem of Emily Dickinson.
The artists had many materials to choose from to create their work; paint, color sticks, sticky backed vinyl and ceramics. They could also create a book with bird images in them.
