Warm/Cool Curvy Lines (3rd Grade)

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.

Then students choose between cool or warm colors.  They pick 3 or 4 and use the side of the marker (to get thick lines) and follow along the black curved line, using one color above the other.

Then 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!
