As I mentioned in a previous post, I have a TON of painted paper scraps left over from my chameleon projects. With my kindergarten I decided to make torn painted-paper rainbow mosaics... but with my 1st graders I wanted to do something a little more open ended.
I really like the results! Students got to be as creative as they wanted to with this one!
|Butterfly *very popular subject :)|
|LOVE how this student interpreted the project - VERY original!! :)|
|Possibly inspired by my kinder projects hanging up outside my room|
|They love angry birds!|
|Butterfly and flower|
On the last day as some students were finishing up, we read the book "Pezzettino" by Leo Lionni. Then I grouped my students into groups of three and gave them a mini white board and a tupperware full of magnetic math pattern blocks. Students were invited to work in their groups to create temporary mosaics with the pattern blocks (something I remember loving to do when I was little)!
