First graders learned all about pandas in art class. We learned they are from China, they eat up to 40 lbs of bamboo a day, they are solitary animals, and they are rare. For our project, first we sponge painted the background, using sponges to paint the bamboo trees as well. They then traced to size circles for the panda's nose and head. They learned how to draw and cut a heart for the nose. And the rest of the details were cut from scrap paper as well.
