Animals in their Habitats
Children explore various wildlife creatures and investigate their environments. Using a woodblock as a base, children will create their habitat with pastels, tempera paint, markers and pieces of various papers. An animal will be made out of Model Magic and decorated using markers and googly eyes.

Space Aliens from Mars
