Here’s how to draw a baby chick, which I found to work really well with kinder through 2nd graders.
I recommend finding some kind of circle to trace for the head. A bowl, roll of masking tape, anything to get it round and centered on the paper. Circles are some of the hardest shapes to first draw, and students often spend so much time trying to make them look “right” that they miss time to finish their drawing.
- Black marker
Prep: Print tutorial for each student.
- Draw guide lines on paper or fold in half to make creases.
- Students follow the tutorial to draw the baby chick in pencil.
- The baby chick is traced with a black marker.
- The baby chick is colored carefully with crayons.
