Combine the science of fireworks, the art of written language, and the visual arts of fields! Use amazing new technology to create a memorable greeting card.
Ask students on what holidays they enjoy fireworks? Fireworks are used around the world for celebrations! Fireworks are chemistry in action. Powdered chemicals are mixed and wrapped inside paper wrappers; these parts are called stars. Several types, sizes, and colors of stars are then layered inside a larger package with gunpowder.
Because fireworks are controlled explosions, and the force explodes outward, fireworks look like lines going out from a center point. Some lines are longer and thicker than others. Some curve downward to the ground. Some explode again in mini-blasts. Each of these types can be very interesting with lots of colors.
Have students look at pictures of fireworks. Notice how the lines are in various combinations and shapes. Students practice making these lines with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils on paper. When students have a few patterns that they like, then use Crayola Color Explosion paper and markers.
Cut Color Explosion paper into quarters with Crayola Scissors. Students draw a finale of fireworks. The awesome, random colors are revealed they draw!
Use a Crayola Glue Stick to glue the fireworks design to construction paper folded in a card shape. Use Crayola Markers (they complement the bright Color Explosion colors) to add a greeting and message.
