Chinese New Year is happening in a couple days and my 1st and 2nd graders celebrated with some beautiful artwork! Check it out…
Several of my classes learned about Chinese New Year a few weeks ago. We incorporated lines, patterns, texture, paper sculpture and paper folding into these projects and they made a great display!
Check out some of the awesome koi fish by my fifth graders! We are looking at Asian art in all grades right now. After discussing some of the stories about koi fish and looking at lots of pictures of real and drawn koi, they started sketching their own. Next week, we will paint them with watercolor. I’m super impressed with how well they are doing so far.
I love teaching the kids about Chinese New Year. It is such a bright, colorful celebration and teaches the kids about a different culture. Perfect, right? So these are a couple of projects that I do with 3rd and 4th grade. 3rd graders made the koi fish wind socks and the 4th graders did the “old” scrolls.
