Plasticine Pictures


These plasticine pictures were created by a Grade 1 class. I always keep a container of plasticine around the class for kids to play with if they finish early. For this project, kids simply made a picture with plasticine- they stuck it on squares of scrap foamcore I had lying around. I have also done this on paper plates as well, though, they're not as sturdy as foamcore.

Beforehand, I like to show/read a children's book with plasticine illustrations-- my favourite is anything by Canadian author & illustrator Barbara Reid.

Here are some of the Grade 1 results: Ta da!
