The fifth grade students viewed the paintings of contemporary painter Susan Andreasen, who creates oil paintings of endangered animals in their natural habitats. They also viewed the art of National Geographic photographer Joel Satore, who completed a major photojournalism project on endangered species in North and South America. The fifth graders observed photographs of endangered animals, and they created colored pencil drawings of these animals within their natural habitats. Through creating these drawings, the students learned that art can be used to bring about positive changes within society.
