In follow-up to jungles in first grade, I have my second graders draw a lion on white 12x18 paper. I demonstrate the steps on drawing the lion and then they are on their own. Their lion has to be divided into shapes so that patterns can be put on the lion. After the pencil drawing is complete, they use a black Sharpie marker to go over their lines. Watercolor or tempera cakes are used to color their lion. The following week, the lions are cut out and glued to black paper. Green cut out leaves and vines are added. Stars and a moon complete the jungle background.
