Wang Yani Monkeys
The students loved this project!! I found a short clip about the history and life a Wang Yani to show the students and the K-1 kids loved seeing a 4 year old paint better than their teacher. This project started with the clip them the kids just painting a monkey on their own, no directions given. Then the went step by step with me as we painted a monkey then they painted a green bamboo background for their monkey to live in. Over all a very fun project that the kids loved! Lasted roughly 3 weeks.
