A Color of His Own: creating a setting

Every year, my kindergarten classes read Leo Lionni's A Color of His Own.  Not only do we discuss the difference between authors and illustrators, we cover the intriguing topics of disappointment and happy surprises.  We also talk about the importance of camouflage in nature and we create a setting for our color-changing chameleon.  Some years, when we have time, we create a whole book of images, but this year we are a bit crunched for time, so we each made one setting.  It was a great way to keep everyone busy while I helped them each choose and title their art for Fine Arts Night.
Very cute!
