Our boy & girl penguins. Again, an idea 'creatively borrowed' from a pinterest post. The kids loved the torn paper part of this. Tearing the squares seemed to be quite 'zen' for them and it was the quietest it's ever been in my room during Art as they focused on tearing the pieces. I helped them along by drawing the shape of the penguin for them and cutting black and white paper into narrow strips. Tearing the squares from strips of paper made it very 'do-able' for grade 1. I think we're going to try some other torn paper art for Valentines Day and Easter. Stay tuned.
