Anatomy of an Acorn

Standard
Anatomy of an Acorn

First graders have been working on their painting skills by learning to use value to show form. We also integrated their lesson of labeling things in a scientific diagram by learning about and labeling the parts on an acorn. They are really turning out well.

Fall Leaves Radial Design

Standard

Our next art journal entry includes warm colors, painted paper, radial design, and fall leaves. We painted a page in our books black and while that dried, we painted three strips of white paper with reds, oranges, and yellows in different textures and patterns. Then we cut out small leaves and arranged them in a radial pattern and glued them down. They are turning out vibrant and beautiful!
