Oil Pastels, Music, and iPads make for a very fun art project!
This project was inspired by Susan Tiedemann from Brunswick Acres School in New Jersey. Thanks for your inspiration!

When our lions were finished we were not quite done. We talked about what would make us roar. Would we roar when we were feeing happy, sad, mad, silly?
Using the iPad app Morfo students were able to bring their lions to life.
I combined each child's lion into a class video using the iMovie app. Here's the finished work -
