The children have spent more time in reflection thinking about body parts of the deer to include in the craft chicken wire deer. In this post a duo of Bats is working on fashioning the neck of the deer. They placed pictures of deer necks within sight so they could have a clearer vision of what the neck of a deer looks like. The hard part is transferring that brain image using chicken wire into a three dimensional neck.
The Bats decided that the neck should be strong since it holds up the head so they doubled the chicken wire creating a sturdy base for the deer head. They referred to a picture on a documentation board that stemmed from an earlier discussion about drawing deer from an angle. Therefore they decided to create their neck using an angle moving away from the body.
