A bird on the wing...

As an off-shoot of our study of Darwin we have been creating a bird sanctuary, studying about birds and today we are doing art and poetry having to do with birds. We are using two great books as a resource. For the poetry we are using Eric Carle's Animals Animals which is a rich colorful book that is filled with a variety of Carle's art and poetry from a variety of verbal artists.

To do the art we are using another awesome resource filled with some of Eric's best tissue papers all bound up and ready for use in many many many craft projects. We have had this book of tissue paper for at least 6 years and are just now running it dry, but I hope to find another one very soon. Some of my favorite kids art work has been created with this tissue paper. Above are two of today's collage treasures, wonderful, no??
