Second graders were given the assignment of making a watercolor rainbow that stretched the entire length of the paper. They then let it dry and glued a black cityscape on it. This was to simulate a shadow as the sun was going down. And since we used green and blue and purple, we turned that into water and made a reflection of the cityscape In the water!
First graders learned about texture which is something feels. We felt a stuffed animal, a string ball, a peacock feather, bubble wrap, quilt stuffing, and a rock. We compared how they felt and made a large poster explaining our findings. Then we created a cactus and used forks to paint the spikes on! They turned out wonderful!
If given the instructions of making a tree with only a straight edge, and told to NOT make any curved lines, could you do it?
My seventh graders can! And they did.
Here’s their answer to that question…
Seventh graders were given a chance to see just how unique their fingerprints really are!
This is how we did it.
We took markers and colored our fingertips. Then we stamped our prints and took the best one out of all five. Then the print was scanned in and put into a photo program and the colors were changed. We all had fun doing this. Take a look at the results below!
The kindergarteners would like to say Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! Their little mosaic hearts seem to say it all, don’t you think? We have done mosaics before, actually, so we didn’t have to relearn things! Everyone remembered what to do and they turned out great!!
The seventh graders also learned about how to create paper slinky snakes! They did such an awesome job and they turned out great!
