3rd Grade Reflection Drawings
This has to be one of my all time favorite projects to teach! I sorta feel like a magician when I reveal the reflection pressed into the bottom half of the paper. The kids think it's so cool! To start, we talk about different types of art - landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes. Next, students share what types of big cities they have visited and some of the most famous features of those cities. I demonstrate how to draw different sizes and shapes of buildings on the upper half of the folded paper. The more color they add, the better the drawings will look! When the drawings are complete, they paint the bottom half of the paper with water and then fold the paper and reveal the reflection! You should try it with your students! You won't be disappointed!
