1st Grade students created a wonderful birds eye view of their family table. This lesson was inspired by the children's book
Tar Beach, by Faith Ringgold
After reading (a some-what shortened version of) this delightful book, students discussed the sorts of activities that they did at their family table. Students said they eat dinner, play games, and do their homework at the table. Students then used a circle tracer to draw their table and people tracers to add their family. Details were added to show the table activity and to create individual family members.
Students took turns guessing what each family was doing at their table. This was a lot of fun and a great way to show that a few tables may need more detail! Students completed their drawings with crayon.
This was a good beginning of the year project!
Easy clean up with fun results!!
