- Distribute plain white paper. Have each student draw a very simple picture on the paper. Give each group different materials to use for their picture (tissue paper, paint, crayon, chalk, markers, felt pieces) Have the students plan what materials they would like to use to create an Eric Carle picture.
- Demonstrate the technique Carle uses to make his pictures. Have the students cut shapes from tissue paper and use watery glue to paste them on the design. Students will use the materials given to them to create their artwork.
- All pictures will be laminated and made into a book.
