We just finished our 2nd week of school and we also finished a very cool bulletin board and writing and art project on OWLS!
|I gave the students lots of materials and gave them a "feather" shape to trace...and several "masks" for owl faces to choose from (Barn owls have heart shaped faces, burrowing owls look more like a mask....|
|Then they added feathers and wiggly eyes.....|
I got the idea from a cool website called THAT ARTIST WOMAN
She had done a similar owl that we looked at online before starting. Her website is HERE.
She is an art teacher for elementary kids. She is a master....
|I collected a bunch of twigs from my front lawn during the last windstorm...|
I had some scrapbook papers in plaid, some tan material and we added dots to some of the papers....
Owl Babies video link. This video shows burrowing owls in a tree with 3 babies and a mother. It has no narration, just sounds of nature. It shows the mother hunting at night and eating worms and insects. It is about 3 minutes.
|Ours turned out pretty good too!|
|My kids were creative with their reports on Owls too....|
|I loved reading them.....|
|Don't you love their captions?|
|This owl was very fuzzy!|
|All of them looked so different!|
|Some added moons......|
|Very colorful Owls.....|
|After reading several books and a weekly reader we wrote facts on a giant owl....|
