Rise of the Phoenix

After watching a short animated video about a Phoenix the students had a go at drawing their own version of a Phoenix. A Phoenix is a mythical bird that arose from the ashes of a fire. Do you know of any other mythical creatures? If so share them here with a comment.

  1. Hello class and bloggers,

    I really enjoyed drawing the phoenixes. Everyone did a really good job!
    It took a long time but it was worth it – now they are finished, hung up in the classroom were everyone can see them. I think everyone did a really good job choosing the colours and mediums. They really match the personality of a phoenix: courageous and firey!

    I know of some mythical creatures you might be interested in. Here are some of them:
    Mermaids, sirens, unicorns,dragons, fairies and minoturs. My personal favourite creature on that list is the dragons. I would love to have a pet dragon if I could.

    Thank you for reading,

  2. Hello class and bloggers
    I really enjoyed drawing the pheonix. I reckon the hardest part about it was the body.
    What do you reckon the hardest part about it was?

  3. Hello 3/4 Price,
    I really like your pictures of the Phonixes they are very creative. I can think of a few mythical creatures like the Minotaur and Pegasus, a white horse with wings.

  4. Hi Class and Fellow Bloggers
    I really liked drawing the Phoenixes because you get to draw totaly new things. You get to use firery colours.


  5. Hi 3/4 Price

    I love the drawings of the Phoenix. Your colours look great and very vibrant. I found this website which is a top ten list of mythical creatures. The Phoenix is listed at number 10. Top of the list is the unicorn.

    • Hello Mrs S
      Thank you. Thank you again.
      Wow, I didn’t know that unicorns were that popular.
      What do you think should of been top on the list? I think the pheonix should have been on top.
      I looked at that website you were talking about, and I really got interested in it! I did not know that the sphinx is a mythical creature.

      Kind Regards Lucy

      • Hi Lucy

        Thanks for replying to my comment. I am glad that you enjoyed looking at the website.

        In answer to your question I think that I agree with the unicorn being listed as number one because of all the stories that I have read which have included unicorns. Also because of how they are such a beautiful mythical creature that represents innocence, imagination and goodness.

        Why do you think the Phoenix should be at the top of the list?

  6. Hello everone,

    I loved doing the phoenixes! It was probably the best thing I’ve ever done in school. :) Do you believe that phoenixes were EVER real, like when there were dinosaurs, if they were real?

  8. Hello class and fellow bloggers,

    I liked drawing the Phoenix’s because it was fun trying to get that shape of the Phoenix’s body and the fire had different colours all threw it colours like red, orange and yellow. I thought the body was the hardest part and the wings were a little hard to. The pictures looked GREAT up on display with the different variety and different styles of phoenix’s. I know another mithical creature the Lock Ness Monster aka (also know as for people that don’t know) Nessy.

    Does any one know some fact’s about The Lock Ness Monster?

    • Hi Sabastian,

      I’m also quiet intrested in the Loch Ness Monster. On poptropica on criptids island you can learn about it in the famous guys mansion if you didn’t know. It also teaches you about heaps of other mythical animals. Computer games aren’t always bad for you!
