Painted Paper Chickens



The best part about this project is making the paper we used for our chickens.  I see this Wednesday group every other Wednesday in addition to coming with their classroom teacher's regular art time. This special group of students are in various grades but benefit from lessons designed just for them.

  About a month ago we spent the class time creating the black paper for our chickens and then lots of gold and red paper that we would need for the beaks, etc.  This past Wednesday we put together our chickens by tracing the lids of various containers then adding brown and gold strips to the base for our straw. EVERY student loves google eyes but we discovered they needed a lighter background so we put them on white circles so they would show up better.  I'd like to give credit for this lesson but I don't remember where I saw it or if it came to me in bits and pieces of someone else's lesson. If you know, leave me a comment.  I really like how they turned out!

  2. I made these with my Basic Plus class that has special needs students from 2nd-5th. I usually use Kindergarten through 3rd grade lessons with them with lots of support. I think you could easily work these K, 1.
    Thanks
