Just another WordPress.com weblog

This lesson was designed to integrate art into our second grade study of dinosaurs.   We looked at a power point of fossils and learned how they were formed.   The fossil necklaces were made by rolling a ball of Model Magic, then lightly flattening it.  The oval or roundish discs were pressed onto shells, ferns, etc.  A straw was used to poke a hole in the top.  When dry, students mixed watercolors to paint each piece.  Matt Mod Podge sealed each piece.  The cord is a piece of synthetic sinew, which is a waxed thread.  Wooden beads that repeated the paint colors were added for embellishment.
