Animal Silhouettes, 5th Grade

This was a wonderful lesson to help students understand the concept of mixing tints.  Students began painting the background by mixing one color with white. The idea was to get subtle changes in the color by adding more or less white.
 After the background was created, students chose an animal to paint on top.  I allowed students to choose any animal they wished.
I found the idea for this lesson on TeachAndShoot.com.  Overall, I think the results were great!
