First Grade Christmas Trees


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.


Model Magic Frogs Gr. 1

These adorable frogs were made by mixing yellow Model Magic with a touch of blue.  Different sized balls were attached to form the feet and legs.  A bit of white was rolled for eyes, and a poke from a Sharpie created the pupils.
