Alexa - 1st grade
Since I only see my classes for four weeks now, I really try to combine lessons when possible. So my Northern Lights with Polar Bear Portraits was a great combo lesson. We made our polar bear portraits first on blue construction paper with white pastel and charcoal. Next we created colorful Northern Light shows with chalk pastels on black construction paper and then pine tree silhouettes were painted with black tempera. Before adding our cut polar bear portraits, the last touch was a smattering of snow fall dots using the end of our paint brushes dipped in white tempera.
These pieces were created by 1st and 2nd graders.
