LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations.

Layered Painted Paper Snowflakes


Grade 2 students made these lovely layered snowflakes using watercolours.
I traced thee different sizes of circles onto large 11 x 17" white photocopy paper. I made a photocopy for each student. They painted these using watercolours; you could also use tempera or tempera cakes. 


Cut all three circles out.


I showed them how to fold each circle three times and then cut into it to create a frilly snowflake. 



Glue all three snowflakes together, going from largest to smallest. 


Choose a plastic gem and glue it to the center for a bit of razzle dazzle!




Some finished Grade 2 results!
