This is an art project that can be used in a special needs classroom as well as in occupational therapy, general ed, or even an art classroom. This project will help with students' abilities to use fine motor skills (tracing, cutting, gluing, blending with chalks). Also, helps with sensory (blending chalks with fingers).
The project includes an information/direction sheet, two templates (a bear and a bird), and sample photos of each.
I am an art teacher as well as a special education teacher. I have used this project with 3rd and 4th grade students but you can use it with pretty much any grade level, depending on the skill level of the students!
