Children create a colorful banner reflecting their research on a given topic.
Organize students to create a colorful banner reflecting student experience such as a field trip, book read, etc.
Discuss the event or experience with students. Document student responses on a classroom white board or easel paper. Students will use these contributions as ideas to create their banners.
Provide students with a large piece of banner paper and a set of Crayola Crayons. Encourage students to make use of the majority of the banner paper.
Once students have completed their illustrations, make the pointed end of the banner. On the bottom of a large sheet of white construction paper, use a ruler and Crayola® Construction Paper™ Crayons to mark a triangle. Cut out the triangle with Crayola® Scissors. Assist students with this step, and the ones to follow, as needed.
At the other end of the banner, fold over the edge about 2 inches from the top. Cut a piece of colorful yarn long enough to make a hanger. Tie the yarn in a loop. Put Crayola® School Glue along the inside of the crease in the banner
Students cover work area with recycled newspaper. Put on a Crayola® Art Smock. Paint over drawings with Crayola® Washable Tempera and So Big® Brushes. The crayon will resist the paint and make designs pop from the banner. Dry overnight.
To add sparkle, decorate your banner with Crayola® Glitter Glue.
