This is a great project for K and 1st that has super-easy prep and lots of opportunities for learning (art history, design concepts, color theory, and vocabulary)…. and results in everyone being successful. Try it and see!
- 12×18 white paper
- 7″x7″ cardboard template (one per student)
- crayons (black, red, yellow, blue)
1. Place your template anywhere on your paper, so that its edges are parallel to the edges of your paper. Trace around your template with a black crayon.
2. Then, move your template to overlap your traced shape and continue tracing to create more squares and rectangles across your paper. Keep all your lines vertical and horizontal… no diagonals!
