Let's learn about boats!
Provide students with models of a variety of boat types such as sailboats, tugs, freight, cruise ships, fishing boats, canoes, kayaks, steamboats, rafts, paddle boats, etc. Talk with students about similarities and differences between the different types of vessels.
In preparation for creating boats of their own, ask students to and family members collect a wide assortment of boxes, foam produce trays, gift-wrap and paper towel rolls.
Students select a boat type to create a 3-dimensional model of using as many recycled materials as possible. Students may select several boat types and combine aspects of each to create an original model.
After selecting materials, students use Crayola Scissor to cut pieces, such as cardboard rolls for smokestacks. Straws make great masks and flagpoles. Glue pieces together using Crayola School Glue. Dry overnight.
After covering their work area with newspaper, students put on Crayola Art Smocks and paint their boats with Crayola Washable Paints and So Big Brushes. Students decorate the boat with Crayola Glitter Glue. Allow time for models to dry overnight.
Allow time in the school day for students to present their projects and explain their choices for design.
Let's make something!
