Open Ended Penguins

I am a big believer in authentic work. I want their work to reflect their own ideas. Students need to be given opportunities to practice the creativity skills we are teaching them.

Now often times I have students who say they can't do it. I encourage them to try and do their best. I let them know that as the famous quote goes-art is knowing which mistakes to keep. It doesn't have to be perfect.

We are starting a unit on penguins this week. We read a story about penguins and why they have the characteristics that they do. Why they have webbed feet, why they are black and white.

I asked the students to use construction paper and make their own penguin. 


Pin It!
