This week we're starting a new project on insect art.
Lesson 1 - Drawing insects in pencil
All insects have three body parts: thorax, abdomen and head. Do you know any good facts about insects?
Work through the power point attached.
Lesson 2 - To draw insects in colour
Did you know that insects have two names, their formal Latin names and then a second one which usually describes what they look like. For example, the pterourus glaucus butterfly is known as a tiger swallowtail because it has tiger stripes and a body that looks like a swallow tail.
Have a look at the insects below and invent a name for them based on their appearance.
Lesson 3 - Insect mosaics
Pick one of your favourite pictures from below and then have a go at answering the questions about it.
