4/5 Art – Mixed Beast Tunnel Books – April 2014

In 4/5 Art, students did scientific research toward preparing for their project. They discussed animal adaptations in nature, including body coverings (such as spotted fur or white feathers), body parts (such as long legs or hooked beaks), and behaviors. We then read the book “Mixed Beasts” by Kenyon Cox and Wallace Edwards.

Using what they learned about body parts and body coverings (those adaptations that they can see), students created their own mixed beast, including a made-up habitat and imaginary hobbies.

Finally, students designed and created tunnel books, a 3-D object where the viewer can see depth in a single scene. It can be a challenge to go from 2-D to 3-D, but our students did a great job with it.
