Aerial Perspective Snowmen

2nd graders read the story Snowmen At Night.  They drew snowflakes with white crayon on white paper to create a wax resist when painted over with blue water color. Students then learned what aerial perspective is. Aerial perspective, or bird’s eye view, is when you are viewing something from above. They cut out three different sized circles and outlined them in blue oil pastel. Instead of stacking the snowmen slightly overlapping one another, 2nd graders stacked and glued them one right on top of the other to create an aerial perspective. They added a scarf, face, and arms.
