Abstract Color Wheel


Students look at abstract painter Robert Rauschenberg and his art with letters. After gluing their initials and a black paper shape on a white piece of paper, they spread primary colors (using matt board pieces) to make secondary colors. Lastly, they add black until they feel their artwork is finished.

I Am a Star


Students discuss how they can 'be a star' by helping others. They look at books with shapes and colors and name them. They then glue colored shapes on a long strip of railroad board -- punching holes in some of them to make peek-a-boo colors. Lastly, they fold, add stars and hang!

On Top of the World

Students look at a globe and discuss what is land, water, and ice/snow and how the water currents move over the earth. They paint water on a circle, cut organic shapes to make ice and continents, and put themselves where they live... on top of the world.

Snowshoeing and the Arctic Winter Games


Students practice their spatial skills creating a wintery scene with their own special snowshoes. They also learn how snowshoes work to keep us above the snow, their animal inspiration, and their role in the Arctic Winter Games.
