This lesson plan is great for Pre-K, Kindergarten, or 1st grade. Inspired by the book by Jennifer Sattler, teachers can use guided drawing for this lesson on drawing a flamingo from simple shapes. Because of the story details, this lesson allows artists to have choice in their colors and patterns. Easily adaptable for many different media, but written to use with tempera paint sticks. This lesson plan is also aligned to South Carolina Visual Art Novice Standards.
