Poems and pictures portray our gratitude for Earth's natural resources.
What natural wonders of Earth make our planet unique? Ask students to choose one topic that is of interest to them, such as water, mountains, or endangered species. Invite students to research information on how these natural wonders can be preserved now for the future.
Once research is complete, students outline a scene that reflects the beauty of nature and findings from their research with Crayola® Ultra-Clean Markers on white construction paper.
Ask students to cover their work area with recycled newspaper. Dip Crayola Colored Drawing Chalk into white Crayola Washable Paint to add color and texture to the scene. Add details with Crayola Washable Watercolors and Watercolor Brushes. The wet paint will create a dewy effect that is perfect for waterfalls and morning meadows when it touches the marker outlines. Dry.
Add finishing touches to the art with markers, as desired.
On white paper, students compose a colorful poem to accompany their artwork thanking Earth for its natural gifts. Poetry should describe the beauty represented in the painting, and convey the urgency for preservation of resources in a convincing way. Display art and poetry in a public place to share student messages with others.
