North Carolina Agriculture Still Lifes


I had my 3rd and 4th graders create still lifes inspired by the fresh fruit and veggies they are offered everyday at school. We looked at a map on the NC Department of Agriculture’s website and discussed some of the commodities that are grown here. I was worried that they might be bored with this but they actually enjoyed talking about their experiences of going to apple festivals, picking strawberries, and field trips to the pumpkin patches. I loved the bright, colorful variety in their pictures. : )
