For this project, students cut their leaf pictures which were completed the week before into strips of paper.
Students glued the strips of paper on a green piece of construction paper.
From a pile of Magnolia leaves we selected a number of leaves and created a new composition.
Students wanted to paint the Magnolia leaves.
My suggestion to them was to paint only one.
Student comment: "The Magnolia leaves are smaller than my green leaves."
Student comment: "I can see the veins on my leaves."
Student comment: "It is a family of leaves. The three children are in the middle."
Student comment: "It was a windy day."
Student comment: "Do you think the other leaves are upset because we did not paint them?"
