My Grade 4' made the super adorable ice cream cones for Mother's Day.
I altered her project a bit to allow for some more choices for my students.
I prepped the lesson by cutting lots of different colours of 9 x 12" construction paper in half. Light brown was for the cone and then some ice cream 'flavours' (strawberry, pistachio, etc). Strawberry/cherry was clearly the favourite!
They started off with making their cone and then drew on the texture lines using a brown coloured pencil. This was cut out. They used the shape of their cone to determine the size of the ice cream scoops(s). Once those were cut out they could add any kind of topping like chocolate sauce or whipped cream and a cherry.
On small scraps of coloured paper they wrote out adjectives describing their moms. These were cut out into little 'sprinkle' shapes and glued onto their ice cream.
These ended up being a bit too flimsy for my liking so I took the time to laminate them all.
I loved how they all turned out and the kids loved them even more!
All in all, this took about 2- 40 minute periods to complete.
