1st Grade Andy Warhol Soup Cans

I have been doing this project for years.  It is a great 1-3 week project and there are many different ways I have done it.  This year I went with paint.  It was one white 12"x18" paper that we folded in half and painted the part red, and we also paint a littler piece of paper yellow.  If we didnt have snowday I would have also like to painted gray. I like to personalized the cans by using thier last names.  I go on Word and print all thier name in Font that is close to the Campbells logo.  Then I draw a line around the name so the students know where to cut it out.  When I do this project I dont tell them what we are making, but I give them clues.  They have alot of fun with it.

4th Grade Self Portrait in Space

I saw this project on a  Self Portrait in Space the final frontier this is so much fun to do. It was a total different way to do self portraits.  My students really enjoyed doing them as well.

First I talked about how to draw the face right on a 9"x12" white paper. After we did this we painted them in.
Next they drew their space suits on a 18"x24" white paper.  I show them pictures on real space suits. After that we cut a whole out for thier face.  I know the place where I saw this they laminate the faces so it would look shiny.
