Explain that students will be creating a summertime mural depicting animals and plants. Discuss where the different features might best be drawn on the paper. Assign teams of students to specific animals or plants. Give them time to look through books and pictures before using the markers to create the mural.

Have students create a mural of a local habitat. Have students label the various creatures. They could even write information about them on index cards that could then be posted on the drawing.
