This is an adorable owl project perfect for Fall. Any elementary class will have fun creating these-
in this case a Grade 3 class.
Show the class photos of owls. Maybe take some owl books from the library so kids can reference from them. On large white paper (construction paper or drawing paper with a slight 'tooth' works best for the chalk pastels later on), draw a simple line drawing of an owl.
Once the coloring if completed, to polish them up a bit, slowly (some kids really want to speed up at this point) pass over all the pencil lines with a black oil pastel.
Once finished, you can leave as is, or glue onto black paper and cut around it, leaving a thin border.
