These individual characteristics really helped the students to create their dragons one feature at a time. After firing, the dragons were painted and some students chose to add glitter or googly eyes.
These hot chocolate (or hot cocoa as some of you may call it) paintings were done by my grade 3 students earlier this year (during our Winter). The idea came from this image I found on Pinterest. Unfortunately it doesn't link back to the original source so if you know who I should thank for the idea, please let me know!
Drawing cups was actually a great way to teach about ellipses and the perspective of round objects. After painting we added a couple of collage elements - cotton wool for the steam and for marshmallows we stuck on pieces of that foam that comes with packages (the stuff that is actually made of some type of cereal).
To celebrate the Olympic Games in London earlier this year, my grade ones created these London snowglobes as a souvenir. These were inspired by the fantastic 'giddy giddy' blog with their snowglobe postcards.
I had my students choose a famous London landmark to draw inside a circle. They then coloured their drawings with textas and addded spots of glue and glitter for the snow. We then cut a round, frame from black card and added a base to their snowglobe by cutting a piece from brown paper and writing the name of their chosen landmark.
