Can you draw an insect?
Children show us what they know by expressing themselves through many different mediums. Art is one of those mediums.
We asked the children if they can draw an insect. We asked, “What parts would you need to draw in order for the viewer to know its an insect?” We found that the children had a pretty good understanding of the basic parts of an insect, their number of legs, wings, etc.
Some of the children drew very specific insects while others drew insects that were more generic. Some paid careful attention to the realistic colors their insects were. Some wanted their insects to be their favorite colors . We even had a few “rainbow” colored insects.
Look for these lovely drawings in the red room under the big windows.
