Second grade students sure had fun making their aliens with marker and pastel. We talked about different shapes for their bodies, different types of ears, multiple eyes, arms, etc. During the next class, students created a space background with metallic paint and pastels. They also each completed a writing activity to accompany their art! They answered questions about their aliens, such as "what is the name of your alien's planet?" and "use attributes to describe that planet!" Their creativity flourished in this lesson!
