Bug Jars

Standard

So who doesn’t love catching crawly, glowing, 6- and 8- legged things when you’re little? The kids loved this project and love telling everyone about all the yucky bugs, snakes, and spiders that they like to catch and put in jars. We discussed the bugs and then moved onto the magical ellipse. We talked about all the things we could draw that would need an ellipse (cups, bowls, ice cream cones, and cakes.) Then they traced the jars but had to make the top look like an ellipse. Then we added all of the bugs, etc and colored them super bright and super neat.
They’ve received lots of nice compliments on their artwork from lots of their friends in other grades! 🙂
