The fourth in our Habitat series, Habitats: Life in the Coral Reef – Biscayne National Park is now available. This unit contains information specific to the coral reef habitat and connects fun art lessons and science together while bringing Biscayne National Park to your classroom.
The chain of narrow islands that make up the Biscayne's Keys divide the Biscayne Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Here the coral limestone faces outward toward the sea and the coral reef exists. It is a destination your students will love to learn about while gaining an understanding of a coral reef habitat.
Project One creates a beautiful layered mixed media Coral Reef landscape with paints, oil pastels and painted paper details
Project Two creates a mixed media shark common to the habitat of the coral reef of Biscayne National Park
Project Three creates an Octopus using mixed media - painted paper and oil pastels
Project Four creates painted paper sea turtles constructed out of easy, basic shapes with fun details
These art lessons are easy to follow while being successful and fun for students.These lessons cover grades 1-4, but any age will love creating these projects.
Each project requires 1-2, 40-minute art sessions depending on grade level.

How to create Painted Paper Handout
