First graders created a reindeer by using geometric shapes. When
I showed the students the example they thought it looked too hard, but then we talked about breaking it down into small shapes like circles and ovals. The students did well with this! I gave them two 9x12 pieces, 1 blue & 1 brown. We started by drawing an oval standing up for the head and a oval laying down for the body, 4 rectangles for legs, and a triangle tail. Once we piece the body together we added the eyes, nose and then created the background.
