Tropical Feathered Friends

Ask students to define an endangered species. See if they know of any endangered birds. Use pictures of the birds to continue the discussion on colors, texture and habitat.

Animals in the Wild

Discuss different animals from various geographical areas. Have them choose animals that are protected, extinct animals, arctic animals or whatever animals they are interested in.

Hand Stamp Painting
