Giving some application to what the second graders are learning in their classroom, we choose personal adjectives to create our artwork. The students separated their paper with their favorite line then added the adjectives.
Next, we talked about how the color spectrum is a line. It's really like the color wheel spread out to a line. We watched this super cute video about Roy G Biv: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf33ueRXMzQ
We talked about how oil and water don't like each other and the oil pastel repels the paint.
This was a great way to start off the year!
