How does an image tell a story? The fourth graders and I discussed how we can read pictures like we read stories. The lines, shapes and colors become the characters. That means images are pretty important!
We discussed how we could all look at an image and have different memories or feelings about it. The students created sketches of images that reminded them of a fun experience from the summer. After choosing their best one, they used tooth picks to create it on a piece of scratch art paper. Next, they added designs and patterns to the object to give it emphasis. Great job! It was so fun hearing all the stories too!
