If you are looking for a fun springtime drawing, then a baby chick is a fun project for students of all ages. Their cute faces and bright yellow color makes for a great combination.

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.
