This was the lesson I got pretty recently from Sharon (who I student taught with 13 years ago) at a conference. We painted the color wheels together, I gave them a circle to trace for the head. The rainbow hair was on the bottom of our color wheels. The arms were supposed to be cat stairs, but I made a last-minute decision to make spring arms. Pants are just a 6x 9 construction paper with a triangle cut out. I really like them, and will do them again.
For your viewing pleasure, a few more:
|Love the attitude of this clown!|
|Faces are just marker.|
|OK, how awesome is the hump-back look?!|
In the future (like, next year) I'll stretch the put-them-all-together day instead of rushing them and have them write a little story about their clowns or what they learned about color mixing.
For now, they're going to go up in the hall for all to see and enjoy!
