3rd Grade: Thai Elephants
3rd Graders have been learning about the culture of Thailand, and so I decided we would create a project based on one of Thailand's most beloved animals, the elephant. The first day we drew our elephants into foil (silver, copper, or gold) with a pencil, added a blanket with a simple pattern or design and cut them out. Next day students colored their elephants with Sharpies and painted paper for their background. Last day, we added the string and bead tail and taped our elephants onto the background with masking tape. Students had fun with this one!
