Here's a lesson 3rd grade did over the last six weeks. We focused on line, warm and cool colors, and patterns.
It starts with a curved line, with a loop. It goes from one edge of the paper to the other.
I handed out rulers and had students draw 4 lines across their paper.
(I forgot to take a picture). In each section they have to create a
different pattern. After they filled the spaces they outlined their
pencil lines with sharpies.
The results were stunning. Way to go 3rd grade!
