Is there a creature in your milk carton?
Prior to engaging in this activity, collect clean paper and plastic milk cartons, plus cardboard rolls and other recyclables. Adult supervision will be needed for the art component of this activity.
Engage with students in an investigation of animals in their lives. What types of animals have they seen? How many legs did each have? How many eyes? Did these animals have fur? What colors were the animals? Where did they live?
Let students know that they will be re-creating an animal using recycled materials. Share with students the elements of art: line, shape, form, color, and texture in preparation for their art experience.
Students work in small groups and select a variety of the collected recycled materials to make their animal creations. Encourage students to talk about how they are combining their materials to make creations. Use Crayola® School Glue to attach parts to the creatures.
Using Crayola Washable Markers, students draw features on their animals, or on construction paper glued to the creature.
Allow projects to dry overnight. When time permits, provide students the opportunity to present their creatures to classmates, sharing what details they used and why for each animal.
