With Spring full steam ahead it's hard not to notice the birds. For a class of children ages 3-5 we focused on birds from the artwork of John James Audubon.
I gathered the kids around to look at works by Audubon. We read a silly bird story, Bird, Bird, Bird!: A Chirping Chant. After that we listened to bird calls from an iPod App. We talked about birds and all of the parts that make up a bird.
Without specific instructions or restraints the children used pencil then marker to draw their own birds.
After that we used watercolors and watercolor pencils to add details.
