I posted about this project back in 2013 here. This years projects are turning out so sweet, I just need to post a few new ones. I made a small change in the lesson this year as well. Students drew the vegetation and bird during day one prior to applying the watercolor background with the kosher salt. That was allowed to dry and week two they returned to the project using watercolor pencils to add color to the bird. I think this gave them better control over the coloring of the bird and it gave me the opportunity to introduce them to an additional medium, which they loved. This is alway a WOW lesson that I make certain to post on the bulletin boards and share with everyone in the school. This is done with 2nd grade students.
