Kindergarten students loved creating active giraffes. We integrated Music, Art, and Movement by singing and acting out a giraffe song. The Art Room's mascot, Mr. Giraffe, oversaw all of the fun.
The students used yellow paper to draw a body and neck for the giraffe and cut out the pieces. They then glued the pieces on blue paper and added a background. The other giraffe parts were precut and glued on next. Finally, they painted with a Q-Tip to create spots and glued felt and canvas pieces for the hair on the giraffe's neck.
Each giraffe is unique.
Reading the book Giraffes Can't Dance is a great way to connect Art and Literacy to this lesson.
