- white drawing sheet, A3
- tempera and brushes
- pictures of animal furs and side views of the corresponding animals
- black construction paper
- scissors and glue
For this task the children search the internet for photos of animal fur. The photographs have to be printed in colour. Then they paint the fur as accurately as possible on the white sheet. While drying, children can look for pictures of the animal from which they just painted the fur. This picture has to be a side view.
Print the animal and use a copier to enlarge it. The animal picture must fit on the painting of the fur.
Put the picture of the animal on black paper and tape it down. Then cut exactly along the outer lines of the image, while cutting the black paper also. Glue the silhouette on the painting.
