Third graders learned that a silhouette is the image of an object or scene represented as a solid shape, single color, and it's edges matching the outline of the subject.
In class we did a Smartboard activity where the third graders had to guess the silhouette of a famous person- can you name all the silhouettes?
Students used chalk pastel to create the sky and moon background. Next they learned a different approach to painting a fall tree by using a piece of cardboard for their paintbrush. Students used the cardboard to paint in the trunk and thick branches of the tree by using a scraping motion, and then skinny branches by using a stamping technique with the cardboard. Students used only one color to create a silhouette- like effect. They did a great job!
