Torn paper landscapes: KDG
As an introduction to landscape and space, kindergarteners learned what a horizon line is and what goes above and below it. We collected green, yellow, and blue papers from magazines and we also made some texturized papers ourselves. We carefully collaged the torn papers to create a sky, a sun, and a grassy field, and defined the areas with a length of thick yarn. I was inspired to create this lesson by a similar product over at Dali's Moustache. I am very pleased with the results, and it was successful for all students : ) Next up, Grant Wood style pumpkin farms!
