More and more plants are sprouting! Not only can we learn about them, we can also make beautiful art with them. Learn how to make your own leaf rubbing with artist Katherine Lampert as your guide!
We can use art to help us better understand plants and animals in nature. For example, we can learn more about how fish protect themselves by making some fish scales of our own! Click here to download our handout for full instructions.
Now, let’s take inspiration from nature to create our own animal! Click here for instructions on creating your own paper turtle.
