Scarecrows and lines

Kindergarten continued exploring different lines through a fall themed composition. The students were instructed to build a scarecrow out of different sizes of construction paper cut into rectangles and a circle. Before they put their scarecrow together they had to decorate each piece of paper with a variety of lines. They were encouraged to make sure their lines stretched across the whole length of each paper. They were then given the option to color their scarecrow pieces. The students also painted a background for their scarecrows. They painted two different pieces of paper, one blue and one yellow. Texture was created on each piece by making a lined pattern with a thin piece of cardboard on the yellow piece and white circles on the blue piece. Once the background was dry, the students glued on their scarecrow pieces. This was a great project for the students as they were able to practice, their painting, drawing, placement and gluing skills. 🙂
