Explore Thanksgiving and harvest traditions then create painted paper mosaic cornucopias.
Students work in small groups to find out what types of food are grown and harvested locally. How are they raised? Picked? Transported to market? Find out about the origins of Thanksgiving or other fall harvest festivals celebrated in the community. What myths surround the holiday? Students prepare reports to share information orally with classmates.
On construction paper, use Crayola® Markers to make a simple line drawing of a cornucopia (horn of plenty, usually a woven basket). Inside and around the cornucopia, draw foods that are grown locally.
Cover a table top with recycled newspaper. To prepare to make the paper mosaic, students use Crayola Tempera Paints to paint several sheets of paper in the colors of the fruits and vegetables they drew. Be creative and mix colors! Think about the dappled yellows and reds of apples, the variations in green leafy vegetables, the mottled colors of weaving materials such as straw. Dry.
Cut the painted papers into small, uniformly-sized squares with Crayola Scissors.
Arrange the squares to make a paper mosaic of the cornucopia, fruits, and vegetables. Attach the pieces with a Crayola Glue Stick.
