1st Grade - Underwater Self Portraits

Our first graders started off the year heading into the deep blue sea.  They drew images with a crayon of things they would find if they were scuba diving underwater.  Then the students learned about the waxy nature of crayons and how wax and water will repeal each other.  Many parents over a certain age will remember Mr. Roger's trip to the crayon factory.  Well, thanks to the internet, our students were also able to see Mr. Roger's trip and learn how crayons are made.  Next, they applied a blue watercolor wash over their drawings.  Finally, they created portraits of themselves to glue on top.  It was a fun adventure.
