Alligators and Crocodiles

Do you know how to tell the difference between an alligator and a crocodile? My third graders do! In Art class, the third graders have been learning the similarities and differences between alligators and crocodiles. They learned what it means to be cold-blooded, what a habitat is, and what the characteristics of a reptile are. Third graders worked on many art skills when creating their reptiles such as; drawing, cutting, gluing, weaving, stamping, and painting! Students put forth great effort in creating these giant works of art! Thank you Paintedpaper blog for this idea!


  1. Oh boy are these awesome! Your students did a great job!

  2. I used to make paper weaving alligators/crocodiles with my first graders - I would always read the book "Snap!" to them and it was a huge hit! Very cute story about animals in Australia.

    I love the way you combined the textured/hand painted paper element with this project - they're beautiful!
