Winter Cardinals

Standard

First graders have been working on a painting of our state bird, the cardinal. We discussed how all the states in America have different objects and symbols that represent them. Then we talked about the cardinal and we also talked about how male birds look different from females.
We started our paintings by sketching in pencil, talking about each part of our bird. Then we traced in sharpie. The next class we painted everything but the snow. We will do that last and I’m going to try to make some sparkly white paint so it looks like fresh sparkly snow. I’ll post more pics when they are complete!
