A Tower of Turtles

Bridge class celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday in the art room. They first listened to the story, ‘Yertle the Turtle,’ and then worked on an art project to compliment the story. The first step was to create patterned, painted, paper using green, blue, turquoise and yellow paint. The students enjoyed painting and making their designs on the paper. Once the paper had dried, the students were given half-circle templates in four different sizes. These were to be the turtle shells. They selected different patterned paper for each turtle, traced around the templates and then cut out the shells. They also cut out a head and four legs for each turtle. All the pieces were then assembled starting with the biggest turtle on the bottom to the smallest turtle on the top. A tower of turtles!

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity. Please check out the Shady Oak websites at http://www.shadyoak.net/ and http://www.shadyoakprimary.com/ to learn more about these unique schools located in Richmond, TX.
