The Making of A Mural

The Butterflies class created a mural where they depicted what animals do in winter. They painted a large, white paper with a blue sky, hills of snow and some ice.

The kids used makers to draw the animals--deer, fox, bear, rabbits, a cardinal and more! They placed them on the

Their partner then placed that many pom poms down the tube, where they would land in the basket below. They then counted all of the poms together to get the total.
