At the Zoo!

Way back at the end of the school year, we took a field trip with the seventh graders to the zoo. It was a great opportunity to try some REALLY quick small sketches of different organisms since I needed to keep up with the kids. It was actually a nice chaperoning tool because I could be right next to my group, but did not feel like I was breathing down their neck - the kids seemed relaxed and chatty with their friends (like this type of field trip should be!).  Plus the kids kept asking me what I was drawing - they seemed excited about journaling!
