This lesson was done with First Grade and is based on the book Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds. The illustrator is Peter Brown and his imagery is where this lesson came from. That and many bags of scrap paper.
Students began by creating a creepy background with sharpie marker and black watercolor. While that was drying, they created three carrots with tops out of construction paper.
Students used scrap paper for the teeth and large hole punches (from the office-I have a giant bucket of punches) for the eyes.
Details were drawn with permanent marker. Once the carrots were finished, they added them to their background with white glue.
