I have been using The Water Hole by Graeme Base with my kindergarteners as a base for the projects we have been doing. Love his books! This week we painted snow leopards. I traced the outline of the leopard head and the students used the tan to fill it in and than were given black, yellow and white for the details. I have also made number books for them with a world map and we have been putting small photos of the animals on the continents they come from.
