Mrs. Reilly's 1st grade class created their very own Lorax on Earth Day this year. After reading Dr. Seuss's "The Lorax", students used construction paper, scissors, glue, and markers to create their very own Lorax.
During our unit on color 4th and 5th grade students used warm and cool colors to create symmetrical works of art. Symmetry is
the quality of being made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis. The simplest type of Symmetry is "Reflection" (or "Mirror") Symmetry.
Here is a quick video that explains the lines of symmetry.
Using our understanding of symmetry, students completed a four part process using their name or nickname to create a symmetrical image. After creating their design students were asked to choose either warm colors or cool colors to complete their work of art using oil pastels. Warm and cool colors are two categories of color that express mood and temperature within the scope of the color wheel.
