To continue our unit on architecture, Kinders created paper bag houses inspired by This Project. I was super stoked to research the Ndebele people of Africa for this sculptural kindergarten project. The geometric, colorful designs are so cool and the kids were as drawn to them as I was. (Get it? Drawn? Because of art class??????)
Anyhow, they thoroughly enjoyed learning all about Africa and the designs of the Ndebele through Ndebele Buildings << its a PowerPoint. They were so impressed by all of the lines and shapes and were inspired to create their very own on white paper bags. They used black crayons for the outlines and tempera paint to fill em’ up with color.
Drying them on the drying rack was kind of crazy but clothes pins made it work.
The next week, kinders cut and glued colorful construction paper to create a roof, windows, and doors. What a colorful neighborhood of houses!
