Here is your question for the weekend crazy monkeys!
This is a bonus challenge question --- for two scholar dollars, you need to bring in the answer written on a piece of paper or you may write the answer in your agenda.
QUESTION: On a clear day, how far away can a polar bears nose be seen with a pair of binoculars?
I do a lot of mystery drawings with my students where they create step by step illustrations by having to follow verbal instructions from me. It is a great way to practice listening skills and following directions.
It is awesome to see the end project that the kids create, no two drawings ever look the same. The kids are so proud of the illustrations they created, as am I. I am posting some of the kids amazing work for you to see! What a talented bunch of kids!
The kids will now use the illustration they created to write a descriptive paragraph about their escape from Frankenstein in a haunted house. The kids are super excited to start this project next week!
What a talented crew I have in art this year!
I am absolutely amazed at the master pieces that my crazy crew of kiddos create! These kids make me so proud with all great effort they put forth in every task they tackle!!
