Grade 1/2 Iguana Drawings

By Ben (Grade 2)

Lesson Background:
This is another tropical island-themed artwork we did this week, based on our class novel "Nim's Island" by Wendy Orr.  This lesson was taught by the internship student who is currently teaching in our class, Miss Fielding.  I know my class and I all think she did a superb job helping everyone to create these wonderful artworks! 

Lesson Materials (per child):
1 sheet A4 white art paper
Coloured progresso pencils

Lesson Steps:
1.  We looked at photos of iguanas and discussed their colours, patterns and shape.
2.  We drew the iguanas with step-by-step teacher modelling of each small part.  Students were asked to identify what shape each part of the iguana's body was.
3.  Students coloured in their iguanas with progressos, trying not to leave any white gaps.  More-able students were encouraged to incorporate shading and different tones in their colouring.
4.  Students then looked at photos of tropical plants, and drew these into their artworks.
5.  Once the artwork was completely coloured, students outlined all large shapes with black progresso.
