First graders were very busy and learned all about secondary colors and arachnids for this project. This project was inspired by a post over at Artolazzi.

We began by reading The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle.

We talked about secondary colors and created textured painted paper. Next, students used white oil pastels on black paper to create a web.

Then, students cut their papers into semi-circles and traded with a friend to have a spider body with 2 colors. They cut the papers to make them symmetrical and glued them to their web background. They cut another piece of painted paper into 8 strips and folded them into zigzags for the legs.

Eyes and mouths or fangs were added for details. They turned out great!
