Garden Collages Inspired by: Lois Ehlert

We read the book "Planting a Rainbow" by Lois Ehlert. We started out by learning different kinds of lines. I created an action for each kind of line, and we played Simon Says to help rememebr the different kinds of lines. Then, the students use the different kinds of lines to draw stems using oil pastels. Next, we studied different shapes that can be used to make flowers. They cut shapes out of different colored construction paper to make their flowers and glued them onto the background. Finally, they cut out leaves and added them to the collage. What colorful sight!
