2nd Grade Overlapping Circles, based on Kandinsky’s concentric circles. Students watched the K. powerpoint, then watched a demonstration on how to create overlapping circles. They traced various round objects to create circles of different sizes. Some were overlapping, and they were encouraged to use the principle of balance. Then they outlined their shapes using Sharpies. Last they painted the circles using watercolors, and mixing new colors in the process.
1st Grade Circle Birds, based on Kandinsky’s concentric circles. Students watched part of the K. slideshow, and then a demonstration on how to painting circles around an already cut out circle shape. The students repeated the process. On a later date the students added eyes and a beak and cut out their bird shape. They glued it to black paper and added feathers for wings.
