Raindrops falling from dark clouds? Or a sunny day? Color, crumple, and tear a no-mess scene to show your favorite weather.
During an investigation into types of weather, have students work in small groups to study a particular type of weather event such as a thunderstorm, hurricane, tsunami, etc. Provide text resources for students, as well as teacher approved Internet web sites. Once research is complete, student groups will prepare a presentation on their selected topics.
Before presenting their research to classmates, students use Crayola Color Wonder™ Paper and Soft Sticks® to create a picture of the weather event. Here is an example of one way to show a rainy day scene. Begin by coloring and tearing out a Color Wonder Paper circle to make a big yellow sun. Glue the sun on a colored construction paper background.
Tear several clouds from Color Wonder Paper. Crumple them up and unfold them. Color the rain clouds to look stormy—the folds will look a bit darker and add texture. Glue the clouds into your picture.
Next make raindrops. Color a big area of blue with Soft Sticks. Tear it into tiny raindrops. Glue them falling from the rain clouds.
Students complete pictures with a rainbow, grass, flowers, or even themselves with an umbrella. Student groups plan to display their pictures as visuals during presentations.
