MES Nature Art

This week was all about getting out and celebrating Earth Day.

Kindergarten watched a telling of the Lorax and created their own collage with the Truffula Trees (always a good theme).

1st grade discussed migration and the return of birds with their bird mobiles. We practiced drawing a bird on paper then traced it onto transparency film.

To make the Earth better: Be nice to butterflies.

To make the Earth better: Plant Flowers
2nd grade brainstormed many ways to help the earth then drew their thoughts in chalk outside.

3rd, 4th, and 5th grade watched a video of Andy Goldsworthy and made collages using natural materials. They could try to make a design or simply play with the media. Very creative solutions.
