This is a simple lesson plan to use for Remote Learning. No supplies needed but paper and pencils. Colored pencils if they have them.
This could be adapted to any grade level.
I used this with my Beginning Art High School students
1 session; 75 minutes per session
Students will be able to use their drawing skills to combine 2 or more different animals into one new species.
What if 2 animals got together to create a new species?
What would that look like?
Would it be half one animal and half another animal or would it combine some traits of one onto the body of another?
Your artistic mission is to create a new Animal species.
Combine 2 or MORE animals into one new animal.
The materials are up to you; draw, paint, pen and ink, sculpt, collage.
Use whatever you have on hand and are comfortable creating with.
It should look like you spent a good amount of time on it,
Take a picture and upload it to Classroom* when you are done.
List what animals you combined in the private comments section
If you can not upload to Classroom try to put it in a doc, then attach that in Classroom
Email me the picture
Can’t wait to see what you create!!
Because this was done as a remote learning assignment. Drawings were checked via Google classroom and I used private comments to provide comments to the students individually
