This lesson is going to incorporate more design then anything. Have you ever gazed at the clouds and images started to appear? Have you ever looked at a word long enough and it starts to look unrecognizable? Well if you answered yes, that is exactly what we are going to do with this project. You are all going to create a drawn animal by using the letters that make up that animals name. 
We are going to watch a show that does just this.
