Third Grade "Rawhide" Landscapes

Third Grade made these "out west" landscapes to go along with their Grandparents' Day song.  Obviously, this was a very involved project.  I liked the results, though.

We talked about the desert landscape.
Kids drew the landscapes.
Kids painted the landscapes.
Kids outlined parts of the landscapes with oil pastels.
Some kids cut out cacti and flowers out of construction paper and glued them on their art.
Then, I brought all my old boots, cowboy hats, and bandanas to school.  The kids picked a hat, some boots, and a bandana of their choice.  They dressed in the western garb and posed.  I snapped the pictures.  I cut the pictures out and we glued them on the landscape.

Fun Project for third grade.  We got lots of compliments from parents, teachers, and students.  Make sure you have at least 3 class periods to complete this art activity.  This project requires the teacher to go the extra mile.
Here's a clip from the Blues Brothers with Jake and Elwood singing, "Rawhide".
