Inspiration: Chinese New Year, Year of the Tiger.
Grade 3 students made these tigers to celebrate Year of the Tiger.
They constructed a base using a cardboard tube body, a section of egg carton for the head, pop stick legs and a pipe cleaner tail.
We then covered them in a layer of paper mache. After looking at a lot of photos of tigers, the children painted in orange and white and used black markers to draw on the faces and give their tigers some stripes.
I like the drawing this boy is doing whilst waiting for his tiger to dry...:)
