Amazing Artists

We had fun on Friday afternoon in Visual Art creating some artworks inspired by the picture book 'Rumble in the Jungle' by Giles Andreae which we have been reading in Daily 5 as a focus text for our strategies of tuning into interesting words and using the pictures.

You can watch an online version of the picture book here:

Rumble in the Jungle by Giles Andreae

We had the choice of making origami frogs in regular size or teeny weeny baby size or making lions (some of us did both or all 3!)

Here's some pictures of us doing our art and craft and the finished products...

What wonderful artists you are 2G! Way to go!

      I don't do any arts & crafts anymore but love helping Katelyn do her PIP.
      My favourite thing to do is travelling & exploring. I love meeting new people & seeing how other people live around the world. I also like taking photo's to share with family and friends.
