Ugly Duckling Swan

We watched the Classic Disney short
Ugly Duckling.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCX-mPstrPU


We practiced drawing swans starting with the number 2. 
THen formed the head and body from this. 
Students added the water lever at half way.
They were encouraged to add pond life to the underwater area. 
We brainstormed and made a list of what could be in a pond environment:
frogs, tadpoles, fish, dragonflies, flies, butterflies, turtles, ducks...

Fold paper in half. This fold is the surface of the water. 
WIth a PENCIL, Draw the swan on the surface of the water. 
Add bottom of swan under the fold (belly and feet). 

Madelynn, 1st grade, is here outlining her drawing with a
permanent marker before coloring and  painting. 



 Color all details (excluding the sky and water)
