Camouflage your favorite rainforest animals!
As a whole class activity, ask students to compile a list of animals that live in tropical climates. Then determine a list of questions they have about these animals. Post the animal list and questions on a classroom white board using Crayola Dry Erase Markers.
Organize students into small groups. Each group will select an animal from the class list to research, focusing on finding answers to all class questions and adding several interesting facts about their selected animal to the research.
Once research is complete, students groups will create a Tropical Dreamscape on large white drawing paper. In the foreground use black Crayola® Washable Markers to draw overlapping tropical vines, plants, flowers, and trees. Encourage students to add detailed patterns to trunks and stems.
Use a marker to outline the animal hidden behind illustrated foreground foliage.
Separate the background and foreground of the environment (such as plants, mountains, sky) with horizontal wavy marker lines.
Use Crayola Markers in tropical colors to fill in your foreground elements, background divisions, and hidden animal.
Provide time in the day for student groups exchange drawings with other groups. Challenge each to locate and identify the hidden animals. What graphic techniques did the artists use to hide their animals? Ask groups to discuss the interesting facts uncovered about their animals.
