Fruit Still-Life Collage

Second graders worked on learning a variety of concepts during this still-life project.

Learning Goals: The learner will...
- use primary colors to make secondary colors
- create a collage
- explain concepts such as, still-life, collage, and overlap
- use chalk to show highlights

The fist day of this project was spent creating special collage paper.  We reviewed ROY G. BIV and color order.  We also talked about primary and secondary colors.  Each table mixed to make their own secondary colors and then painted them on paper.

Next we cut and glued our fruit to create a collage still-life of a fruit basket. The final touches involved using chalk to add highlights which made our fruit look more 3D!

  1. Very clever! Making your own collage paper and the chalk highlights make this very wonderful!
