The season for the Citrus fruits is during the winter, so a couple of weeks ago all my classes did the artwork "citrus fruit", a great art lesson the shape circle and mixing red and yellow to form orange.
For the upper grades they worked on a precut cardboard circle, they drew a circle using the stencil and glued a photocopy of a citrus fruit in the middle.
They formed roundshape balls from plasticine and pressed them on the linedrawing of the circle.
They colored the citrus fruit with the orange they mixed using red and yellow.
The 2nd grade students artproject was to extend the photo copy of the citrues fruit.
They used the stancil to drew more circular shape fruits.
Then they mixed red and yellow to create orange and painted the drewing.
