First graders make collages from torn tissue paper that depict insects in their habitat. The tearing is a new skill, and they use glue with a paint brush to get the tissue stuck down. It’s a challenging project all around, but Mya is really rocking it, isn’t she?
Bonus vocabulary: transparent, opaque and translucent!

First graders at our school study insects, and they hatch butterflies in their classrooms. So it’s a perfect connection to make monarchs in class. We started with mixing an orange, then outlining in black and cutting out. Painting the orange and black on the other side was a little tricky, but we finished with a small brush for veins and white dots, and look! The archway into their hall is a perfect resting spot!
