First grade looked critically at our playground, discussing the elements that are loved and the elements that could be improved. These sketches will be made 3-dimensionally soon!
These pumpkins were drawn from real life and then collages with materials to make them look realistic.
Painting leaves to emphasize the differences and mixing orange!!
Finding differences in trees we look at every day. Lines moving thick to thin, straight to curving.
Can you tell what these stories are from their symbols? (Hint: they start from the center and radiate out)
This has been quite the project so far! Students critiqued their plant life drawings from the last two weeks and selected pieces that show overlap, realistic shape, and lines changing from thick to thin. Currently, we are creating realistic backgrounds using as many geometric shapes as possible to show contrast.
