One of the fourth grade teachers I work with came to me and asked if I could come up with a lesson that involved weather for the fourth grade classes. They were getting ready to start a unit in science involving weather as well as reading a book which discussed weather as well I happily agreed to the challenge.
Not only did we talk about weather, we talked about how weather in art can change mood. How we can reuse old materials to create new art and use different unique items to create a artistic collage.
Step 1: Materials Needed
Large Sheet of Construction Paper
White School Glue
Tag board or scratch paper
Old jeans cut into squares
Old shirts cut into squares (or extra fabric from sweing projects)
Various papers (old wrapping paper, scrap paper, brown paper sacks, tissue paper and so on)
Cotton balls (water color if you want to dye them)
Any other random materials you can use, just about anything you can reuse (trash)
