Celebrate 2022 With Our Year of the Tiger Drawing Activity

It’s Lunar New Year! This drawing activity will spark your students’ imaginations as they work to create a picture of a tiger using only a few lines to guide them.

What Personality Does a Tiger Have?

Before completing this activity, have a class discussion about adjectives.
For example, people born in the Year of the Tiger are determined and inspirational, making them natural leaders. Encourage your students to draw a tiger depicting those traits. Don’t forget stripes and a ferocious smile!

Diversify This Year of the Tiger Drawing Activity

If your students need additional support with this activity, provide a large-copy version of the example on page 1 for them to copy. Alternatively, turn this into a whole-class guided drawing activity.
Encourage your students to explore their creative side with a ‘finish the picture’ activity they can swap with a friend?
