The Kindergarten students learned about warm and cool colors by painting a sort of checkerboard pattern using the different color themes. They did a great job of following directions and had a fun time doing so. After doing their paintings, at the next class, they learned about bilateral symmetry. To cut out symmetrical shapes, the students folded their papers in half, traced a half of a template, lined up with the middle fold, and while the paper was still folded, cut out their design. I mentioned positive and negative space as they worked. After they cut out their shapes, they glued their background piece on the top of black paper and their cut out shape below. The results are quite striking. Although this was quite the formulated project, I felt as though it was the perfect difficult level for the Kindergartners and they rocked it!
