Our drawings come from photos we found searching the sheep breed in web browsers, but I must admit some sheep pictures were picked just because they were ‘cool’ looking. We started at http://www.sheep101.info then continued to other website links. As the year progresses we hope to add interesting facts about each breed.
This has been a learning process for myself, Ms. Sharon and the students. Researching key search words, reading information on websites and learning actual web addresses (narrowed down to the page), not just the ‘blanket site’, resulted in a major learning curve. Art class isn’t just drawing and painting. And I’ve also learned that iPads are a bit harder to read and teach where the exact addresses exists.
If you have questions, comments, additions or corrections about what we are trying to create, please contact me at sharon.gunter(at)lposd.org
More sheep facts:
- Sheep live to 10-12 years old, but one sheep lived to be 23 years old when it died. It was Merino. 
- People raise sheep for their hides, using them for rugs, covering chairs and couches.
