Here are some of the topics we covered when learning about the country down under!
We learned about the aborigines and their infamous dot paintings. I cut out boomerangs from old cereal boxes and the kiddos used q-tips to create fun patterns.
It was hard to capture the texture these coral reef paintings have in a photo, but they turned out so neat! I had the kids use combs, rubber stamps, palette knives and other tools to create their background, as well an additional painting. For example, one student created a textured painting while only using the color pink, while another used only green. Once dry, everyone was free to cut out shapes of fish, coral, sea weed, etc. from any colored paper they wanted. To finish, we added some sharpie details.
