Leaping Lizards or Crawling Chameleons

Third graders explored color mixing and how to make intermediate colors. This was a three day lesson. On day one students painted paper using one primary color and one secondary color to create and intermediate color. Using different rollers and scrapers students were able to give texture to the paper. I had one class paint one side of the paper and another class painted the other side so we wouldn't have white paper showing on our sculpture. 

We watched this video which really got they students pumped!

On the second day we made the bodies and added legs. On day three students made heads, eyes, and tongue.  We followed these step by step instructions.
