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!
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.
