Students in Grade 1 looked at images of poinsettias and created these paintings.
They learned the history of the Poinsettia.
We also talked about Georgia O’Keefe.
I demoed the basic leaf shapes and center circles.
We also talked about the veins in the colored bracts.
This one I really like because the student ran out of blue paint. Rather than bother asking for more, just put a red border around it. I love that kind of creativity and resourcefulness.
