Exploring the magical dragons and fantastic beasts of medieval times is so fun! This project is a great way to tie in all kinds of fantasy literature, including Harry Potter. Many of J.K. Rowling’s creatures were inspired by medieval creatures. This lesson includes 10 drawings of dragons and mythical animals with step-by-step instructions, and a handout of medieval patterns for inspiration. Students learn to emboss on aluminum tooling foil, which becomes the shield. We use permanent markers to add color. Lots of creative possibilities here!
Time Required: 2 hours.
The 30-page project includes:
-Project Overview + Learning Objectives
