Papel Picado

Third graders created brilliant tissue paper banners as part of their study of Mexican art.  A rainbow of authentic Mexican papel picados was strung above the chalkboard.  We noted the variety of shapes that pierced each piece.  Students folded a large sheet of tissue 4 times, and then cut interesting shapes from the sides, bottom, and along the folds.
