Wacky Whales

Painting on canvas using tempera, after researching the different types of whales... killer whale, blue whale, humpback whale, sperm whale, narwhal whale, beluga whale. We started off on what the children already know, and then kept exploring. One should never underestimate young children, they are very knowledgeable and they truly view the world from their own unique perspective! Research and discussion play a huge role as a foundation before painting- it encourages observation skills, puts that painting in context and generates details.
