    I've done a project with fourth graders where we take carrots , potatoes, and rocks and paint them to create animals. We add body parts using straws, clay, pipe cleaners, etc. Before making the animals,I take the students outside and have them choose an area for their animal's habitat. Then they design their animal based on the habitat. After all the animals are made, they put their animal in it's habitat and the other students try to find it. (It once took us forever to find a walkinig stick on a tree)
    Actually, I guess this is more a lesson on camouflage, but perhaps you could get some idea from it
