A lovely Thanksgiving project that I found from the wonderful
art education website Deep Space Sparkle.
Grade 6 students led Grade 4 and 5 students in drawing and colouring a feather. Then, they added a word of something in their life they are grateful for. This aligns with our school's emphasis on appreciation. To read about the benefits of teaching children gratitude, this is a great article:
They sketched out a large feather on long strips of construction paper.
Then used oil pastes to colour and add patterns.
Finally cut out and then their word was glued on top.
Use white glue as glue sticks didn't stick well to the oil pastel.
