The third graders were so creative when coming up with their ideas for this project. I read them two books by Caralyn Buehner, Snowmen at Night and Snowmen at Work. The students were then given instruction on how to draw a variety of different snowmen to show action. Students then created a draft for their project, they were allowed to do anything they could imagine! Before they transferred this to their final they checked in with me. The students were given instruction on how to shade the snowmen to create form, and we discussed various other techniques to use with chalk pastel. The kids came up with some very creative ideas!
