The elementary students won a contest put on by the Henry Doorly zoo in Omaha. The book reading contest had the students and teachers excited and determined to win. They really enjoyed their day at the zoo and I thought it would be fun and fitting to do a project with a zoo theme. I’ve admired Yuko Lau’s animal art, so we used her art as our inspiration and then added the zoo bars. The pictures were so cute that I almost changed my mind and skipped the bars—–we’ll probably do it that way next year. You can check out her art at http://www.allposters.com/-st/Yuko-Lau-Posters_c79911_.htm The directions for, “At The Zoo With Yuko Lau,” can be found in the 4th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
