As you can see, when it comes to coloring and animals for elementary school children there is no limit to the creative ideas out there. Try brainstorming to come up with your own animal coloring craft ideas. Ask your students for good ideas-sometimes elementary school kids are the best source of ideas for teaching methods. Try different activities and figure out which ones really excite your students. A good animal coloring activity can really improve the level of enthusiasm in a class.
Coloring options also include micas. Micas can be classified as both a natural colorant as well as a manufactured colorant. This is because the basic mica is mined form natural sources, however, it is then coated with laboratory created coloring agents on one side to create a shimmering effect. Micas are best suited for coloring clear soaps. In addition to these two soap coloring options you can also use FD&C colorants. These colorants are made in a laboratory and they do not come from natural sources. Because these colorants can be mass produced they are generally inexpensive and widely available.
Improves Hand to Eye Coordination, When children are giving pictures to color, they definitely will hold the crayon and from time to time will check what they have done so far, to determine the next color to use. These activities will help them greatly in their hand and eye coordination. They also have to make sure that the colors does not go beyond the expected line and are required to sharpen the crayons from time to time.
Elementary school is a tough time in the lives of many children. Most kids report a lot of boredom at school. They hate homework and would rather be playing outside. Although recess is fun, most of their time is spent doing some things that they find boring. Perhaps this is a good idea given that some kids will end up doing a job they don’t like! However, shouldn’t elementary school be a time when kids have some fun? Obviously you need to teach them some critical skills, but it is also important for them to enjoy themselves. One way to do so is to encourage their creative side. If kids are given an opportunity to express themselves and control a creative product you will find that they enjoy school much more. Regular creative projects will dramatically change the way elementary school kids think about learning. Because most kids love animals it is a good idea to integrate this love with their creativity. Although most kids don’t know how to draw animals they can learn to color them. Described below are some of my favorite animal coloring crafts for elementary school.
There are many coloring page themes and subjects to choose from but nothing tops cowboy coloring pages! Boys love cowboys and little girls love them too. Children have been playing cowboys and Indians since the beginning of time. Or how about shoot em’ up? What about a game of ”pow, pow, pow”? It doesn’t matter what you call it. It’s all about being a cowboy. And for every kid who pretends to be a cowboy, you’ll find a lot of hooting and hollering, running around, play toy guns and rifles, rope, and who knows what else. Your child’s imagination is wide open, creative, and bound by nothing. And that’s the beauty of a child.
Coloring environments for animals. The kids in your class are probably used to coloring animals but they might not be used to coloring the environments in which animals live. If you want to teach the kids something about animal habitats this is a great exercise. Split the class up into groups and have each group color a large panorama of a landscape. Place different landscapes and habitats in different parts of the room. Provide pictures to the students so that they have a general idea of the appropriate colors. Then cut out the animals the children have been drawing and attach them to the habitats. The finished product is an attractive image of a wildlife scene that can teach the children a great deal about their favorite animals. It will also help to teach them the importance of preserving habitat.
There is no doubt that visual learning plays a key role when it comes to children’s learning and development. In fact, visual teachings are commonly regarded as one of the most important factors that add a lot to a child’s early growth and development. For the records, children are easily influenced by what they see, touch, feel and participate more than just what they hear. Visuals help them retain and remember lessons taught. It also takes care of verbal miscommunication and also creates and retains their interest in a particular lesson. It is often said that humans, especially kids tend to remember 10% of what they hear, 50% of what they see, and 80% of what they see and do. This underlines the importance of visual aids in learning and development of kids.
