We used our penguin art as illustrations in an e-book we are currently writing together. Below is the basic process I used for my lesson: Step 1 For our emperor penguins I began by demonstrating the complete drawing and describing each line.
The children drew lightly with a pencil so they could erase if needed. We completed each step of the penguin together as a large group. Some children drew baby penguins, others eggs etc. The entire process with clean up took us 30 minutes and the final artwork was unique and amazing!! And look what I found in the hallways at school Thanks so much for stopping by.
