Sand Dollars

This was a fun and simple year end project that used up left over paint.  Second and third graders looked at a variety of sand dollars as the inspiration for these colorful paintings.  They noticed the roundish shapes, five spokes and textures made of dots and lines. Students painted directly on large 12″ x 18″ colored construction paper, remembering to pull the brush to get  smooth lines. Radial symmetry was emphasized.  The students carefully cut out their giant sand dollars when dry.
