So, a couple of posts ago, I explained how I like to look at other people's blogs to see what they are doing and "borrow" ideas to use in my classroom. I found a really cool picture at http://dolvinartknight.blogspot.com/ and commented that I was planning on teaching this lesson to my fourth graders. Well, my fourth graders LOVED it! They were very excited and it was a great way for them to relax before the big TCAP testing that is starting today in Metro. Here are a few pictures of the finished projects in the hallway, and a few close-ups of some exceptional ones.
We used markers for the base color (for example, in the ones above , they used marker for the blue and red), and then used colored pencils to shade in the edges.
