Toucans: trying out tools and techniques!

Toucans are colorful and beautiful creatures, and are exotic and mysterious to us in this part of the world. All of the colorful toucans you see in this post started out as mystery drawings - drawings created by listening to clues and drawing along with the teacher to discover what the drawing will turn out to be. Grades 1-5 experimented with this lesson using different types of media - it is interesting to see the different looks created by the variety of materials: black and colored sharpie, tempera paint used as a drawing medium, watercolor paint, twistable crayons, oil pastels, and water based markers.
