Today, we created two types of Spirit Bear Silhouettes:
The Spirit of the Bear Silhouettes and Kermode Collage Bear Silhouettes
The Spirit of the Bear Silhouettes
The is a riff on an activity from our Advent Calendar, our Silhouette Self-Portraits. After we read about Spirit Bears online and in books, the kids fill in the white portion of the bear silhouette with words and images that exemplify their notion of the Spirit Bear and its place in our environment and culture.
Here are their efforts:
Kermode Collage Bear Silhouettes
Using the outline of a spirit bear, the kids slice small bits and pieces of coloured paper and newsprint (you could use thin strips or shreds, but we went more “collage”) to fill in the body or the exterior space around the Kermode bear.
Here are printable PDF files of the outlines: Ahma The Spirit Bear Printable Silhouette Outline 1 PDF and Ahma the Spirit Bear Printable Silhouette Outlne 2 PDF
