Final Fifth Grade Projects

June 6, 2011

As we enter our last week of school, my 5th graders are finishing up some final projects.  Here’s what we’ve been working on.

Georgia O’Keeffe flowers – we tried our hand at drawing some tiny O’Keeffe flowers instead of the huge ones that we usually create – they turned out like little jewels!

Ojo de Dios (God’s Eyes) – my kiddos really enjoyed learning this stick weaving – every student want to make a second one, so we spent several class periods working on these.  The Ojo’s are an easy form of star weaving.  There are lots of websites that give examples and tutorials along with cultural information.

I pre-glued a bunch of popsicle sticks to make the weaving process smoother – after a quick demonstration, my kids really loved this project.

Zentangles – this was actually our very first art project last fall.  See the introduction and information about Zengangles here.  Our Zentangles have been displayed in the art room this year – last week I (sadly) cut them apart and returned the individual Zentangles to my students.  Here’s a look at our Zentangle work.
