Treasure Maps

  1. Third graders watched Reading Rainbow’s Sunken Treasure to learn about the shipwrecked Atocha.  They created an imaginary island and then added mountains, rivers, forests, etc.  Fish, dragons, whales and ships were drawn in the surrounding sea.  A compass rose completed the picture.

Animal Eyes

Careful observation was the focus of these drawings.  Fourth graders selected an animal eye to enlarge on black paper.  They worked from the center of the eye out, lightly outlining the main shapes.  Construction paper crayons were blended and layered following the direction of the patterns and textures on the animal.
