…specifically chameleons. These nifty tree-dwelling lizards have the ability to change color…and move each eye independently – very cool.
Their colors change in response to light, temperature, anger or fear….contrary to popular belief, they do not actually change color to match what they are on.
The images below show the lesson pretty well….
*first the kids created abstract painting (using up whatever paint we had left)
*then we drew and cut chameleons out of card stock
*finally created chameleon habitats…..cutting leaves out of the same colorful paper adds a nice effect
*once they started making chameleons it was hard to stop :)
