The first grade students have been reviewing their basic shapes such as square, rectangle, circle and triangle. Students identified these shapes by pointing them out on a variety of robot pictures. Using a white 12x18" paper, the students were instructed to use these shapes and create a robot of their own. I encouraged to draw large on the paper and to fill the paper up.
Once the drawings were complete, they took a black crayon and traced over all the pencil lines. Using gold, silver and bronze tempera paint, they carefully painted their robots.
To complete their artwork, the students used watercolor paint to paint in the background.
