1st grade project
I started 1st grade teaching the primary colors and symmetry. We made butterflies with construction paper and practiced folding paper and cuttingout shapes - to get two equal shapes- and glueing them on symmetrically.
The next class we continued with primary colors and also looked at artist Piet Mondrian, an artist who is not symmertical in his compositions. I love how each of them turned out so differently!
Kids put pictures together in such a fresh way, that we grown ups can never do! Isn't it great?
