First Grade Monet Water Gardens
First Graders read the book"The magical Garden of Claude Monet". We learned how he loved to paint how the light looked on the water. So we painted water by double dipping into blue and white liquid tempera paint. The children painted in little short strokes like Monet.
They then decorated a coffee filter with markers, which I spritzed with water. These became the lily flowers. Finally we cut the cute green lily pads, glued on flowers and a few dots for glitter. Their ponds are so sparkly and lovely just like Monet's. Lesson adapted from Deep Space Sparkle.
