CATERPILLAR Art

The students made caterpillars as a sign of New life and we are learning about Life cycles In Art the students used one geometric shape to create a simple design based on a caterpillar. On a large piece of paper, we used a circle template to trace around 6 or 7 times to create the curving body of the caterpillar making sure the circles touch.Using 3 bright contrasting oil  pastels, to cover the body of the caterpillar with concentric circle patterns. Then covered top of the caterpillar with hairy line patterns using any colour. Create leaf texture using patterns of v shapes, Then added eye, mouth, feet and spots using black oil pastels. Lastly we covered the sky with blue, yellow and green paint wash.   DSCF2205 DSCF2206 DSCF2207

Mealworms

In our class we are growing mealworms. We each have a pet worm. We observe how it grows and changes. Some of our meal worms are turning into a pupa.
