Check out these air lifted elephants! Wouldn’t this have you pointing at the sky? Students drew elephants in pencil (images from http://etc.usf.edu//clipart), then transferred them onto half sheets of watercolor paper. We outlined and shaded them using ultra fine black Sharpies. On a separate full sheet of watercolor paper, we prepared our hot air balloon using Sharpies and liquid watercolors. We connected the elephants to the balloons with some mini paper fasteners and colored twine. (We taped the two sheets together on the back.) Amazing!
