With the second graders talking about money exchange, goods and services, I decided to tie that into art jobs and then selling artwork. There was a suggestion in the curriculum to make quilts, and here’s what we came up with. I love how they turned out! (I think I always say that… Ha!)
In second grade, the students learned the difference between drawing from observation versus drawing from their memory. They looked at photographs of butterflies, talked about symmetry, and then draw a detailed contour line drawing of a butterfly. I think the students were really impressed with how well they turned out!
