This project began with students drawing shapes that you could use to make a bird (circle, oval, triangle, tear-drop, and the tail - what is that math term - trapezoid) on a blank piece of paper. On the back of this paper they used water-glue, that's the official term, and paint brushes to cover the paper with colorful tissue paper. They cut out the shapes when the paper dried.

They painted a branch, trying to keep in mind the correct scale, and added their own unique touches like leaves and berries. Finally the bird was assembled on the branch.

It seems this little bird above is hugging the red leaf at the end of his fat branch. Precious! The students were only told to make one wing but the birdie next to Romeo has a second wing that portrays perspective perfectly. Bravo!
