2nd and 3rd Grade Andy Goldsworthy Inspired Earth Art

The students learned about the artist Andy Goldsworthy who creates beautiful works of art outside using only what he finds in nature. After viewing some examples of his work, the students went outside and got to work. Some students worked in small groups, others worked on their own. Using what they found outside, they made great examples of Earth Art!

1st Grade Shape Robots

To get the school year started, we reviewed a number of different geometric shapes. We talked about how you can put shapes together to make pretty much anything you can think of. For this project, we made robots out of shapes. We reviewed a number of different kinds of lines and drew lines on the shape robots. The students got very creative with their robots. They did a fantastic job!
