My third graders just finished their first project for the 2011-12 school year. After reading the book Giraffes Can't Dance, the students explored ways to draw these massive animals. After a few sketches of drawing BIG and making sure the necks were long enough and legs strong enough they all had to find a fresh dance move for Gerald to break. We used Sharpies and markers and on the background construction paper crayons. Each Giraffe was cute, funny, and perhaps could be inspiration for "So You Think You Can Dance.".
