2nd Grade students explored and reviewed the use of cool colors. We did observational drawings from photographs of crabs and discussed the environment crabs live in and what their homes look like. We also got into talking about some other great sea creatures! The students created textured coral bases out of clay and then created painted coral paper which was laminated and hot glued into the clay coral piece. The students then used watercolor and sharpie to create their crabs and cut them out to display this cool colored 3-D piece of art!
