First Graders are reviewing the differences between geometric and free form shapes. We looked at several different artworks, including Lois Ehlert's "Circus" collage, so students could identify different geometric shapes in them. Then, we each created a geometric shape collage. Last, we talked about creating prints out of our collage by rubbing crayons across them to pick up the texture of the paper shapes underneath. Here are some first graders working on the rubbing prints of their geometric shape collages.
