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!
