Cardboard Toy Robots 2nd Grade This is my favorite project of the school year! Each robot has a name, function, and price. I love that each one is so unique. First, each student completed an idea worksheet to plan out what their robot would look like and how it would function. How will it help people?

Glue Resist African Animals Watercolour
This is a colourful watercolour lesson I found on the United Art & Education website It's a good lesson on both line quality, wet-on-wet watercolour technique and drawing African animals.

They then went over their pencil work with permanent marker and then tempera paint. This was put up to dry and they worked on their black background (posterboard) .They were given sponges, pieces of cardboard and q-tips to…
