Art /design with Science


Today, I would like you to draw your favourite animal and think about what covers its skin. Is it covered in feathers,  fur, have scaly skin, have wet/moist skin etc? Don't colour it in. Instead, I would like you to see if you can find some materials around the house that you could use to stick onto your drawing to show your animal's skin covering. You might use wool, tin foil, cotton wool, feathers, strips of coloured paper, crumpled card or paper, chocolate/biscuit wrappers, pieces of cut up cereal box, pieces of old material or anything that you can find around your house to show your animal skin covering. Use your imagination and be as creative as you like. You will need to draw your animal big enough, so you can stick on your different materials to show it.

If you want to use some of the draw with Rob videos to help you draw your animals, then you can do. I've put a link on for you to look at them.

If you prefer to just make an animal completely out of materials and you have enough at home, then you can do this instead of drawing it.

Next, fill in the gaps on the sentences below to say what your animal is and which animal group it belongs to (mammal, bird, fish, reptile or amphibian) and how you know this. (There is an example to show you)
