Watering Can Flowers

Watering Can Flowers

I love flowers, so when I can come up with a cool project that incorporates flowers I’m always happy to do so!  The third graders did a great job with their watering can flower bouquets.  The students had choices in terms of what kind of flowers to draw and also for the patterns on their watering can and of course for colors!  We talked about blending our oil pastels to help make things like the handle look more 3-d.  They did a great job!

Open Mouth Clay Animals

Open Mouth Clay Animals

Our fifth graders did these cute clay animals.  We started with pinch pots and then the students were able to add any features to create their animals.  They had a choice of making their animal realistic or fantasy.
