Not so scarey SCARECROWS
1st Grade Students created a multi-media artwork of a scarecrow. On day one, we learned about warm colors and used them to create a sunset sky. We also learned about cool colors and used them to create the ground. Day two we discussed that a scarecrow's "job" was to scare away animals/birds from our crops and gardens. We brainstormed different vegetables and what we might see in a garden. Then we got out the paint shirts and got busy! On day three we got to design our scarecrow. We cut out shirts, pants, hats, and glued our scarecrow parts to popsicle sticks. Gluing "straw" (raffia) added a nice finishing touch. The students are very proud of their work!
