Gobble, Gobble our turkeys have geometric shape feathers!
Students painted paper prior to starting the lesson.
Week One: Creating shapes
We read the book in art class
When a Line Bends… A Shape Begins.
written by Rhonda Gowler Green
This book is so fun and gives many examples of various shapes for inspiration for students to create projects.
After the students created their shapes they traced the shape on the back side of 3 different colored strips of painted paper.
Next, students laid out the shapes and glued them onto the background paper to represent the turkey’s feathers.
To finish the Turkey students created the body and details of the turkey- eyes, beak, claws etc.
We also read this poem about Thanksgiving
All in a word
T-for time to be together,turkey, talk and tangy weather,
H-for harvest stored away, home and hearth and holiday
A-for autumns’ frosty art and abundance in the heart
N-for Neighbors, and November nice thing new things to remember.
K-for kitchen, kettles’ croon, kith and kin expected soon
S-for sizzles, sights and sounds, and something special that abounds
That spells Thanks –
for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving
Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
