Here is another lesson we just finished after reading The Little White Owl. I first heard about this adorable book from Kristyn Demint and her blog, http://herdabbles.blogspot.com. She always has such great ideas and her art program is awesome.
Second graders made these fun little pinch pot owls in one 55 minute class period. One group used colored model magic and one group used watercolors to paint and decorate their owls. They were a huge success and a project much loved by the 7 and 8 year olds!
