Product Description
Ant’s Eye View of the World
Students began this lesson by imagining what the world may look like if they were an ant. 

This is not your normal landscape. The landscapes are from a different point of view....an "ant's eye" view! We discuss who lives in the grass (ladybugs, rabbits, weeds, beetles, birds, etc.). After some discussion on scale and proportion and looking at up-close plants, learners start creating a world seen through an ant's eye. We then draw a few lines together to create giant blades of grass. Next, I teach them how to overlap the grass. Students finish drawing and outline with Sharpie marker, and add color with crayon. They also explore the technique of using watercolor paint resist.
