PROJECT OVERVIEW-PURPOSE: WHAT FUN IT IS TO COLOR, BUT THESE SHEETS ARE MUCH MORE THAN JUST THAT!
THEY ARE FUN ALONE, BUT, WITH A LITTLE EXTRA WORK, THEY BECOME ADORABLE THANKSGIVING GIFT BAGS.
Giving gifts and thinking of others, is such an important learning
experience for kids! And, when they can incorporate their own artistic
touch, it becomes even more appreciated. This "easy-art" project does
this, with only minimal preparation effort for the classroom teacher.
2 actual projects are included in the lesson:
Option #1: Using all steps, this lesson will provide the student with an
experience in art, language arts, writing, and math through simple
seasonal coloring sheets, practice papers, and optional challenge pages.
Many new vocabulary words will be learned. Attention to detail is
encouraged. Small muscle development is enhanced in this project, as
well as, both counting
and easy addition.
Option #2: Shorten the process by simply having the students complete
the practice papers, and go directly to the artistic gift bags, skipping
the language arts-math involvement of the challenge sheets.
