here, in December 2010.
While most kids used lots of materials, I especially love the simplicity of this amazing shark (above) cut from just a few scraps of foam! Bravo!
Don't you love the written explanation on this one (above)?
Straight from my prior post, these were the only rules/guidelines that were given:
- Nothing sticking up off the board (the artwork should fit in the drying rack).
- No blood or weapons.
- You had to be able to tell it was a beast or creature.
- Students could only take one thing from the selection at a time, and had to return stuff the same way it was found (ribbon rolled up, feather bucket closed, etc).
- Everything had to be glued down by counting to at least 10.
Since the students had to get up from their seats numerous times to retrieve materials, I had them take their scissors with them (to cut off a piece of ribbon, for example, rather than taking all the ribbon to their tables). So we practiced the 'scissor rap', complete with hand gestures and sassy attitudes: "Points down, hands around, points down, hand around!"
I hope you have enjoyed this repeat performance!
