Valuescapes



In 1st grade, we are learning the elements & principles of art. For this lesson, we went from basic things like color, shape & line to something more abstract: value. Sometimes I forget that these kids were kindergartners 9 months ago,and I may expect too much from them. However, for those who can control themselves and follow simple directions, their work turned out great. Other students...had a colorful mess...

We talked about value and did a few guessing/data collecting exercises then started the project. It took about a class time and a half to finish these, so I want to find a book to supplement this at the end. Anyone have a good "value" book?
Here are the resources I made if you want to use them!
