I teach a total of five classrooms of grade three students. As I continued to teach Beatrix this week to the rest of our third graders, more students chose her other characters. So much fun to teach students about this wonderful artist, author, and business woman.
Tale of Two Bad Mice
Kitty in Boots
The Tailor of Gloucester
Because March is Women’s History month my classes all were introduced to a different woman artist.
Grade three learned about Beatrix Potter and her water color illustrations of animals. They learned that she was also a sheep farmer, preservationist and business woman.
They could use watercolor, colored pencils, sharpie or any combination of those and could choose to do any of her animas or one of their own anthropomorphic animals.
They all chose Peter Rabbit. Probably because it is spring time.
