This lesson provides many positive learning outcomes, including focusing on the art element of shape, positive communication, and critical thinking skills. By creating the outlines of their hand, the learners are utilizing the art element of shape, specifically the organic shape (as opposed to geometric shapes). They will also learn about various animals and their unique characteristics, including the science of animal classification. Finally, by creating their own animal, the learners are utilizing critical thinking skills by applying, analyzing and synthesizing their prior knowledge of animals with their imagination. The concluding discussion promotes positive communication, while also supporting other academic subjects such as science and language arts, making this lesson a well-rounded, creative learning experience.
