Ever go kayaking? It’s a thrilling water sport. Create a river course and imagine navigating white-water rapids!
A kayak is a narrow canoe, with only one or two openings where kayakers sit. The kayakers, or paddlers, usually use a paddle with a blade on each end of the handle. Find pictures of kayaks and canoes. Discuss the differences between the two types of watercraft with the class.
Using Crayola® Colored Pencils, students design and draw their own kayak.
Kayakers can paddle on a lake, river, or ocean. White-water rivers are classified according to their difficulty. Rivers may be anything from a Class 1, or easy, to a Class 6, nearly impossible. Students research a white-water river, such as Alaska’s Sustina River, British Columbia’s Stikine River, or South America’s Orinoco River. What would it be like to go kayaking on these rivers? Imagine what the rapids would look like.
Cover the art area with recycled newspaper. Dip Crayola Colored Pencils in white Crayola Washable Paint. On black paper, draw a section of the white-water river. Students should draw the river from the perspective of a kayaker navigating the white-water rapids. What interesting effects can be made? Swirls? Dots? Splashing water? Be sure to label the name and location of the river.
Air-dry the rapids before displaying with the kayak.
