Autumn Owls


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.


Ta da!

Do you put newspapers down on the table when doing this? I'm struggling with a way to keep the tables a little less messy since cleanup takes a while after using pastels. These a wonderful and I'd like to try them soon! Thanks!

Pam- no newspapers- I simply give the students a damp sponge or cloth to wipe their area down after they've handed in their work. Chalk pastels are definitely messy- I'm always more concerned about the amount of chalk dust they get on the front of their shirts! lol

Kay- thanks!
