1st grade learned about texture with the help of illustrator, Eric Carle!
Students created crazy mixed-up animals that had parts from many animals. Students looked at illustrations from The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle to help with their own creation.
Like Eric Carle, students gave their animals texture by doing texture rubbings on tissue paper.
After the textures were created, they traced the shapes from their animals onto the tissue paper.
The shapes were cut out and glued to their drawing.
The picture was finished with some crayon textures as well!
