These kindie giraffes are so cute! We started by cultivating the connection to their lives as we discuss our favorite animals and a visit to the zoo. Most kids have seen a real giraffe before. We then move on to a group lesson on how to draw the giraffe. At this point in the year the kids have become very proficient with drawing a variety of things with basic shapes. The students use oil pastel, watercolor and finish off with fine motor skills by adding the mane with yarn.
