Create a work of art from the natural beauty of tree rings.
Integrate a science lesson plan about dendrochronology with an art lesson plan when students create art out of the natural beauty of tree rings.
Introduce tree ring dating to the class. Have samples of tree ring circles available for the class to study and count.
Have students create their own tree rings and turn them into artwork. Let students use their imagination and decide if they want to introduce color, use multiple circles, or cut the circles into different shapes.
To create the artwork pictured, students draw a tree circle with Crayola® Multicultural Markers or Crayola Washable Markers. Color in each ring with Crayola Colored Pencils in a light and dark shade of color to symbolize the early season and late season growth.
Cut out the tree circles with Crayola Scissors and mount them onto a piece of large construction paper with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Our crayons have been rolling off the assembly line since 1903, and you can see how it’s done.
