The ELEPHANT WINS the Printmaking Project!

I needed a fairly quick project before spring break, and this was it!  The third graders really enjoyed making these animal prints.  
We have posted on printmaking before, click HERE for previous posts.
Directions:
Kids drew with a pencil on a small sheet of drawing paper.
Once they got a drawing, they took the paper and put it on top of the styrofoam plate.
Then, they put pressure on the drawing and it went through on the styrofoam plate.
They rolled.
The inked.
They printed.
Simple, but I liked the end results!
The favorite animal was the elephant.  It was the most popular choice of animal printmaking.  I like elephants just fine.  Here is a song about elephants.  A band called Love Tractor played this song at parties in Athens, Ga, in the 1980s.
1965
