Take Me To Your Leader

Second graders did an out-of-this-world job on painting robots. Thanks to Mr. Post at for the great lesson.

After reviewing/comparing/contrasting shape and form as two of the elements of art, we worked on using highlights and shadows to create the illusion of depth. With a little bit of artistic know how, flat shapes became forms and our robots seemed to jump off the page. The students enjoyed putting on the final touches to make each robot unique.

I loved it when many 3rd graders said,
"Why didn't we get to do that last year?"
