The fifth graders had a lot of opportunity to be creative with this project. They were simply told they had to draw a jar and the jar had to have bugs inside of it. The bugs could be spiders, ladybugs, butterflies, beetles, whatever they wanted! The kids came up with some really creative ideas!
This project was so cute. The third graders had to draw the cats with me as a group. They were able to choose what their mouse was “saying.” We then learned all about complementary colors, value, and pattern as we painted this project with tempera paints. Although it was a challenge to get the students to understand how limited their color palette was, they all learned about what complementary colors are!
