Animals and Habitats

Third Grade students have been working with clay animals, they all had to figure out which animal they wanted to create from clay.  After creating their clay animal, students had to research what kind of habitat their clay animal lives in.

Students painted their animals with their local colors (actual color of animal)

This project is great for working with 3- dimensional art and it is especially good for students who work better with 3-D than a normal drawing project.

 Working with a paper towel allows students to paint without additional table cleaning and a spot to wipe off their brush

Students used a tissue box or shoe box to get the habitats made


Students covered their box in paper, egg cartons, fabric, string, pipe cleaners and more they may have brought from home.
