First grade students created these adorable peacocks! Learning about Eric Carle was so fascinating for them; they really enjoyed watching his video Picture Writer.
Using watercolor paints and looking at the color wheel we talk about the warm and cool colors, the students painted one paper with the warm colors and one paper with the cool colors. Next, they worked on the peacock body adding the eyes, beak and legs. I gave them some ideas on the shape of feathers and they were to cut out feathers with the cool colors and add warm colors for decorations. The feathers were glued behind the body and lastly, we glued an actual feather on top of the peacocks head.
