For our last project before Christmas break first grade students created a reindeer portrait.
The first step was to draw large with a pencil using basic shapes.
The next step was to trace over the drawing with a black sharpie marker.
After tracing with a maker, students erased any remaining pencil marks.
The next step was to add color to the portrait with crayons.
Everyone decided which colors would be right for their reindeer portrait.
The students were thrilled with their portraits.
The final step was to cut out their portrait and glue it to a solid background of green construction paper.
Here is an example of the reindeer portraits.
