Third graders designed these pattern owls and drew them on recycled paper from books slated for the big dumpster outside of school. When the Librarian told me that she was throwing away books, I literally grabbed them. I think the pages make our owls look like pretty smart fowl.
Students had a wide range of owl resources to look at while drawing and then brainstormed the patterns. After going over the pencil lines with sharpie, the owls were either painted with liquid watercolor or colored with markers.
These owls brought to you by Reagan, Annaliese, and Henry.
