LE: Birds of the Rainforest



mysterious artist who never claimed his piece..hmm..

Since animals were LE's big theme, I did another zoology-based lesson that focused on tropical birds. We briefly discussed basic facts about the rainforest before looking at Henri Rousseau’s paintings and examples of rainforest birds. Students drew colorful birds out of their imagination and filled the entire composition with color and foliage to create a dense atmosphere. Students drew with oil pastels and painted the background.
