Fifth grade reductive prints
Wow. This was a lengthy process but I think the results are truly stunning! The smart fifth graders related the word "reduce" to meanings in math, such as "take away/ become smaller". After they printed the first time, the fifth graders cut out their skin (face/neck/ears) and also reduced the background by drawing into the Styrofoam plate. Finally, they printed the remaining plate with a new color right on top of the original print. EXCELLENT work, fifth graders!
