Animals and Art Activities

by Janet Sacks, Polly Goodman, Steve Parker

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the "Arty Facts" series, read about science, nature, or the world�then create a special art project around one theme. Look at the teeth of animals to figure our what they eat. Plant eaters have broad sharp teeth, while those of meat eaters are razor-sharp. Next, make a snapping alligator arm mask. Use feather "brushes" to design a "swirly" picture to mimic a bird's flight. Learn about marsupials and then make a drawstring bag, or study beaks and bills and then create a papier-m�ch� duck. Some other topics include scales, patches, fleece, quills, sponges, and plumage. Each project utilizes different materials, which might include paints, foil, beads, tea bags, or shells. Great photographs and drawings are included. Younger children will probably need assistance, but most projects will serve as a springboard for creating some individual works of art. These clever books would be an ideal way to combine the study of science with art. Each book in the series includes an index, glossary, and materials guide. 2002, Crabtree Publishing,
