The tiger lesson is from Draw Write Now, Book 7. This artwork and writing is from a 1st-2nd grade class (6 to 8 years-old.) The teacher was Marie Hablitzel, author of Draw Write Now. Marie volunteered in Mrs. Crocket's classroom at Community Christian School in Red Bluff, California.
Marie taught this lesson each spring. Such fun! The Bengal Tiger lives in southern Asia and it's stripes help camouflage the animal in the shadows of the tall grass.
Marie's daughter, Julie, teaches 3rd grade and these are her students' work. February, 2014.
"I feel I'm teaching things that really benefit my students. The lessons are more than just drawing and writing. Besides history, science and social studies, the lessons promote creativity and build skill and pride." —Julie
"Drawing with my students helped me be more effective overall as a teacher." —Marie
