When I saw @shakyhaakeart’s post with this project I knew it would be perfect for my 1st graders! We began by reading the charming story Mr. Tiger Goes Wild and doing a step-by-step tiger drawing. Students traced and colored their tigers with black crayons.
On the second day, we used water colors to paint the tigers and the background. I showed students how to do a rainbow gradient but they could choose to paint their background however they wanted.
On the third day, the kids used construction paper to create grass, vines, leaves, and other jungle-y shapes and details.
Great job 1st graders!
