Now.. I have done this lesson before, but as you all know I love to improve/tweak projects. I tweaked this project for this year, because I wanted to incorporate color and free choice. This year I used it as the first project to review, practice and introduce pattern, basic line design, animal design, coloring and patterned border frame. Here is the post from last year.
I love the students choice of coloring/pattern in the background.. and their patterns on the border.
If you do this project please link here and let me know! so I can see what you and your students do with this project OR if you have any questions.
