Wonkyworld: Cinco de Mayo Have each student create a quarter of a circle to create the large work. We could incorporate this with our mandala lesson. When they finish their individual mandala, they will do one one black paper for the collaboration.
Try community art project! Each table does it with a large color piece of paper and different colors of paint. then they share them and create Eric Carle Style Collages of animals and write stories about them!
Everyone gets a square with a quarter circle, this is the end result- could be a good ice breaker beginning of year activity. Each student decorates the square and includes their name. Nice way to decorate the bulletin boards in the beginning of the year!
