Use purple, blue, pinks and reds to make a sky back ground. 
THese colors will help the bumble bees stand out. 

I show the class a variety of bee pictures, cartoons and clipart images. I explain that a BEE can be drawn in many different ways. I showed the 2 ways to draw the bee. As an insect, it has three segments. But most drawings are done with one oval or a circle head with an oval body. 

Begin on yellow paper drawing your bees with a pencil. Outline the body with a marker.

Butterfly Garden


Find pieces of colorful paper about 6 inches wide and 4 inches tall. 
I cut a piece of construction paper in quarters.

Fold paper to find center. Make a long oval on the center fold without going to far to edge.
Add to bumps to side like the letter B. Make them BIG, stretching out as far as the paper goes. 

Contiue on other side as well with a backwards B.
Use black crayon or marker to make your designs darker. 
Whatever design you add to one side, you must add it to the other as well. This keep it SYMMETRICAL.



Make 1-3 butterflies. 

Paint the background paper with greens, yellows and blues. 
Use only dots or stripes. THis is suppose to look like the blurry grass behind our scene. 



Find papers with black and white text on them.
This is symbolic of using what is old to make something new again. 
It is giving a new purpose to the newspaper, book pages, or sheet music. 
Just like the butterfly, it has changed. 
 
Draw the grass blades onto the paper. They should be about 6-8 inches tall. You can draw multiple together overlapping or singe blades.

Cut out blades of grass and apply glue to back in dots, making sure to add to the very tip and bottom especially. 

Glue on the grass blades at the bottom of the paper. You can add flowers using a black crayon if desired as well. Any other details (bees, wind, snails, planes) can be added as well. 

Put glue only on the center area of the back of the butterfly.
(if you want it 3D)
Press down on middle section for about 30 seconds. 
Draw on antennas. 
Then wings should be safe to fold upwards.

Ugly Duckling Swan

We watched the Classic Disney short
Ugly Duckling.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCX-mPstrPU


We practiced drawing swans starting with the number 2. 
THen formed the head and body from this. 
Students added the water lever at half way.
They were encouraged to add pond life to the underwater area. 
We brainstormed and made a list of what could be in a pond environment:
frogs, tadpoles, fish, dragonflies, flies, butterflies, turtles, ducks...

Fold paper in half. This fold is the surface of the water. 
WIth a PENCIL, Draw the swan on the surface of the water. 
Add bottom of swan under the fold (belly and feet). 

Madelynn, 1st grade, is here outlining her drawing with a
permanent marker before coloring and  painting. 



 Color all details (excluding the sky and water)
