I have a seen a bunch of versions of this on Instagram and Pinterest lately with all different variations in materials and style. I wanted to try it out with my 4th graders in between our clay unit and our stitching unit as a easy drawing and painting project. It was a huge hit!
The first day, we began by measuring the paper into sections and creating horizontal lines. Then students wrote their names in a way that filled up the space and traced over the lines with sharpie.
On the second day, we reviewed warm and cool colors. Students used Crayola Twistables to color in some of their shapes with either warm or cool colors. On the third day, they painted the remaining empty shapes with the opposite color scheme.
Nice work 4th graders!
