Painted Candy Corns

This lesson looks simple, but 2nd graders spent a lot of time on the little details! First they used rulers to measure an inch all the way around their paper. Next they created a pattern using two colors in this border. Once that was done, students drew candy corn shapes (triangles) in the empty space. We discussed filling up the space and taking a step back from our work to help us check this out. Next we reviewed color mixing, and how to mix the color orange from two primaries. Students then painted in their candy corns. Lastly they practiced outlining neatly.
