2nd Grade- Magical Birch Forests

For this project I taught the second graders how to do some subtle shading to create something that looks three dimensional.  They started by drawing trees, and then adding a bit of graphite all along the edge of the trees and smudging it with their “smudgy fingers”.  Once they had created a whole forest in this fashion, they filled it in with little creatures.  They are sweet!
