Students learned how artists and scientists are very similar. We learned why leaves change color in the fall. We used fall leaves from nature and observed, studied, and identified the colors in our leaves. Then we created a replica of our fall leaf.

Kindergarten students read the story: I Love Trains by Philomen Sturges and using rectangles,
circles, and other shapes, made train collages.
For example, I show students how to draw a circle and then
cut it out.

Students looked at collages created by Romare Bearden and learned about his life and art. Bearden made many people in his collages. We tried to think about how Bearden worked as an artist and saw pictures of his studio. Students learned techniques for creating the body parts and clothes.
