Mixed Breed Animals

Fifth Grade
3 Class Periods

Mixed Breed Animals, Fifth Grade Art Lesson

Day 1:  
To begin this project we examined photographs of mixed breed animals:  Zonkey, Jaglion, Grolar Bear, Leopon, Tigon.  We discussed the parts of each animal that we recognized in each new breed.


Students examined various photographs of different animals that I had on file, ranging from spiders to elephants.  Students were instructed to combine numerous animals together to create a brand new breed in a drawing.

Students were also asked to think about the environment in which they would find this animal.

Day 2 and 3:
Students took the next two to three days to color their artwork using colored pencils or crayons.  Blending techniques were discussed and craftsmanship was emphasized.
