1. Magnifying Glasses--- made from 6" paper plates, painted with the sparkly prang watercolors as an extra treat for the kids.
2. Paint the dirt and grass! --- paint spots of brown watercolor paint, paint the remaining white space with green water color, then stamp with mat board scraps in green tempera.
3. Insect Study-- students drew 1 large ladybug and 3 or more small ladybugs.
4. I hot glued the magnifying glasses above the big ladybugs to show how they work.
Students who had extra time added on a grasshopper.
Lastly we made a hand and arm (one of my first grader's ideas!! so great!).
