Target Find

I know I'm not the first art teacher to post about these, but if you are a Target fan, like I am, these flash cards are an amazing $1 per pack!  They have an animal illustration on front, with the name clearly spelled, and on the back is some information about the animal.  I use them in so many ways in the art room, with all grade levels.  I often deal them out like cards, and have the students practice their drawing.  The information on the back is really helpful for my older students.  I have them read it, and then use the information in the creation of environmental details.  I find that animals are a popular topic in the art room.  They are easily researched, students have a natural interest in them and they can be used in a variety of ways.

I'm not sure if you're aware of some of Target's business practices. Not only are they known union busters but they give a lot of money to anti-LGBT organizations.

Just trying to keep the information moving!
