Document how things change over time by creating a layered-tab book with Crayola® Watercolor illustrations.
With a small group of classmates, discuss how the passage of time affects you, your family, and the area in which you live. 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.
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 your pictures to show how things change over time. Include a clock, calendar, or other indication of time on the edge of the paper, so they can all be seen when the pages are stacked smallest to largest.
Cover your work area with newspaper. With Crayola Washable Watercolors and Watercolor Brushes, add background and details to your drawings. Dry.
Staple your drawings together in chronological order to form a book.
