paper mache pet show

Brooks School 3rd grade students in Mr. Sextons class created these FANTASTIC paper mache pets!  We began the lesson with a reading from Ezra Jack Keets book The Pet Show….Then the students sketched their own pet, and used cardboard boxes and tubes and other “stuff” from the recycle closet to create the 3D form.  Next, a couple of layers of newspaper and elmers glue to paste it all together.  The finishing touches included paint, faux fur, googlie eyes, yarn and other mixed media.
