1st grade birds and nests

Our first graders have been learning about shape and basic geometric form as we study birds. We have learned how to paint and draw birds using basic shapes. Now we are using a special clay to combine shapes and make little 3-D birds and their nests. When we created our birds, we learned about how to create texture by cutting the clay with scissors and by using texture tools to add bumps to our bird nests. Now we are painting our birds. Look for more pictures next week when you will see our beautiful textures eggs and nests!
