Torn Animals December 1, 2010

The 1st graders are working on a cave art unit.  Using earth colors, they ripped paper into animal shapes.  By doing this, the students were forced to eliminate details, something the cave art paintings also lacked.   Next week, the students will be making their own tempera paint from powder, in an effort to understand how cave painters made paint from ground up stones.
