Line Windsocks for Kindergarten

Last week, I posted about line drawings that my kindergarten students made with oil pastels and watercolor paints.

To finish these off, my students glued paper strip lines (folded to make zig zags, curled and pleated) to the bottom of the page.  The students reinforced their learning of types of lines and were introduced to paper manipulation techniques.

Then, we rolled and stapled them at the top and bottom to create a hanging windsock.  A little bit of double stick tape held them securely together.

Hanging them all in the front of the school made for a colorful display.

    Nice work…I loved how you went from a 2d format to a 3d sculpture and you added the line element in the 2nd class. Thanks for sharing!
