Illuminated 4th Graders

Standard

I loved this project because it is personalized for each student, but they all follow the same set of guidelines and use the same materials. We discussed the history of illuminated letters and most of the kids knew what I was talking about before I really got past, “the extra big first letter of the first sentence…” We used a ruler to create the border first, then I had them use letters that I had already printed out, to trace. Then they had to weave something around their letter (like a vine, a snake, a dragon, or a chain) and then color with color pencil. They all came out so well and none of them were even remotely alike! I love it!
