Scientific Drawings

Thinking about a new career?  Georgetown third grade artists learned all about becoming a scientific illustrator.  They discovered that a scientific drawing is a detailed, accurate drawing that can be used to illustrate a textbook or to help study a plant or animal. They enjoyed studying leaves, feathers, pinecones, and other objects from nature as they created these beautiful and accurate drawings.

For a final fun step, third graders painted and printed leaves for a pop of color.  We have some future scientific illustrators who will be looking for a job soon!
