Product Description
I love teaching kids to draw birds because once they can draw a basic bird, small variations in the wings, tails, and beaks create different birds. The children enjoy sharing stories about the birds they’re familiar with, and we learn some new fun facts. They love the Take Along Guide book Birds, Nests and Eggs, which ties in perfectly.

The joy in this project is in the painting! The kids are so engaged painting with liquid tempera, and they like having the opportunity to mix the paint to create tints and new colors.

Time required: 60-90 minutes + 5 minutes the next class.

Supplies needed: black and white oil pastels, large round brushes, liquid tempera, white drawing paper (12 x 18”), placemats.

The 17-page project includes:
-Project Overview + Learning Objectives
-Fun Facts About Backyard Birds + Word Wall (with Definitions)

-Photo Tutorial for Drawing and Painting the Birds and Background

-Student Gallery, Grades 1-2
