Document how things change over time by creating a layered-tab book with Crayola® Watercolor illustrations.
Students break into small groups to discuss how the passage of time affects themselves, their family, and the area in which they live. Questions they can discuss are: How are you the same and different from a year ago? How has your school changed? Your neighborhood? Think about changes that you can see over hours, days, months, or years.
Students choose one example of how passing time has changed a familiar place, animal, situation, or group. For example, if you have a younger brother or sister, think about how your family has changed since that child was born.
Using Crayola Colored Pencils make a list of the sequence of events first. Cut long sheets of paper into various lengths, so when they are stacked smallest to largest, the edge of each piece of paper can be seen. Draw each scene in chronological order on the pieces of paper with the first scene on the shortest piece of paper, continuing scenes on longer and longer sheets. Include details in the pictures to show how things change over time. Include a clock, calendar, or other indication of time on the edge of the paper, to be seen when the pages are stacked smallest to largest.
Cover the work area with recycled newspaper. With Crayola Washable Watercolors, add background and details to the drawings. Dry.
Staple the drawings together in chronological order to form a book.
