About this deal

We shared the book “The Mixed Up Chameleon” by Eric Carle where the chameleon wanted to be like other animals but after becoming like each one and getting mixed up, decided it was actually great being himself after all. The students were given a small pieces of blue and yellow Model Magic paper clay to roll and knead together to make green. With an extensive collection of more than 106,000 rare and unique volumes relating to the history of art, the Jean Outland Chrysler Library is one of the most significant art libraries in the South. He used bright colors to paint tissue paper and then cut pieces from that tissue paper to create collages. The illustrations he created with his collages brought all sorts of animals, scenes, and even people to life.

His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has been translated into 70 languages and sold over 55 million copies. Since the Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than sixty books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote. We celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories, traditions and living cultures; and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. On occasion there may be elements of a video you would prefer not to show to your class and it is the teacher’s responsibility to ensure content is appropriate. Students followed a directed drawing of a chameleon on a piece of A4 paper, and made a ‘foil print’ with markers on the reverse: Colour with markers on aluminium foil, fine spray of water, take a print!

One class period is for painting the papers and the other two are for making the papers into a picture. To that point, it is always important to ask kids questions, and to really give them the floor to speak.

I then showed them a short video of Carle making making paper, and collaging a butterfly, so they could see his process. His picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, first published in 1969, has been translated into more than 66 languages and sold more than 50 million copies. Lesson plan includes Learning intentions, Success Criteria, Victorian Curriculum links, student self assessment rubric and pictures of steps in the process.

She has an undergraduate degree in history from Hamilton College and a Masters in education from Bank Street College of Education. After years of successfully teaching this project in my own studio classroom and in primary schools, I have decided to make this tutorial available as Eric Carle’s books are still very popular with teachers to engage young children in reading and art. Carle first drew his characters on a piece of tracing paper, and then each part of the character was cut out of different colored papers using a blade, such as an X-acto knife.

Distribute the papers in such way that every group gets a variety of the different colours to use in their collage. Students cut out yellow eyes, purple antennae and green circles for on top of eyes and a small triangle nose.More than 10,000 of his original illustrations are in the collection of the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts. Signed "Eric Carle" and inscribed "FOR HENS WITH LOVE/Northampton, Christmas 1990" in lower right image.

Soak for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight in a laundry tub or a bucket, add 2 table spoons of laundry detergent and enough water to cover the garment.After Eric Carle’s recent passing, I’ve done a lot of reflecting on how a humble man from upstate New York, who spent time cutting pieces of tissue paper and writing children’s stories for a living, became one of the world’s largest influencers. To achieve this, arrange the desks in groups of 4 or 5 room set up (1) covered with small sheets of newspaper or soft plastic tablecloths.
