First Grade Robots
If you could make a robot and have him/her/it do anything you'd like, what would it be? That was how I started this lesson out with the first graders. Ohhh.....did a long list of ideas flow from the sweet mouths! Next, after viewing some pictures of robots, we talked about how each of the robots were made up of shapes and lines. Then, we discussed printmaking and how stamping is a form of printmaking. We really emphasized the DOWN- UP- DOWN - UP and not any swooping motions. Finally, we made our robots, titled them, painted them, then created a border using Legos to stamp patterns. I love how they turned out. If only we could really make these!
