First Grade Christmas Trees

DSCN1735

These whimsical trees were part of a lesson in color mixing.  First graders mixed yellow and turquoise blue tempera to create their favorite green.  They practiced painting smooth brush strokes as they turned recycled yarn cones into holiday trees.  Two glittery pipe cleaners became garland wound around the tree.  Jewels, sequins, glitter poms and a doily tree skirt completed the tree.

First graders can:

Identify cones.

Mix yellow and blue paint to make green.

Identify art used in celebrations.
