Patchwork Animals-- Kindergarten

Patchwork Animals  To connect again with literature, the kindergartners read the book Elmer, by  David McKee.  Using squares of colored paper and patterned paper, they are making their own patchwork animal.


 



 

The objectives of this project are to 1) Define, identify, and use a variety of patterns and colors in a collage 2) Show unity by using similar colors in a picture and 3) Create works of art inspired by stories and themes.

So do they glue their paper down and then cut it out once it's dry?

Jessica, Yes they make a patchwork collage on a piece of paper. Then, they draw an animal on the back, cut it out and flip it over.
