I forgot to post these--Giant Flower Emulations by the 3rd graders! This was their last unit of the year-- I wish I would have had more time, the end of the year came so quickly! Next year, I hope to start earlier in the Spring. For this project, each student chose a different flower (completely randomly from a stack of cards that I made.) I taught them some basic sculptural techniques that work well with paper and we talked about the appearance, textures, colors etc of flower and plant species. We used construction paper, oil pastel, colored masking tape, tissue paper, construction paper and glue. Some flowers turned out huge, bigger than the student! Great installation project in the hallway. Next year, I'll talk pictures of them with their flowers to show the scale- fun project!
