Snow Owls

2nd graders learned some fun facts about owls through a video on YouTube before we started this project. I had the students use a variety of painting techniques for this project. For the snowbank and the tree I had students use a small piece of cardboard as their paint brush. For the owls, students used their thumb and fingerprints to make the owl body. I wanted students to realize that you can use a wide variety of materials as a painting tool. They used small paint brushes for the snowflakes. The second class we reviewed horizontal, vertical, and slanted lines. We used those lines for our tree details, and also added details to complete our birds. Lastly we outlined in glitter:)
