We read "The Chicken Chasing Queen of Lamar County," by Janice Harrington. This book has fabulous collage illustrations by Shelley Jackson, made up of many different types of paper and materials and painting. It was a Red Clover book in 2007, and has been one of my favorite children's books ever since.

To create out chicken collages, we started by collecting texture rubbings from around the room and painting them with watercolor paints, to observe the resist technique. This gave us a variety of beautiful papers to use. We used these papers and other scraps from our scrap cart to create fun and funky chickens.
