We inspected the tulip and all it's fascinating parts.
We created each and every part on our own flower using
sticks, wire, straws, tissue paper, tape and construction paper
(we had painted this, earlier, with watercolors).
We admired our work.
After a snack picnic outside and more investigating with our magnifying glasses, we returned to the classroom where we viewed a large variety of Georgia O'Keeffe's flower paintings. From our previous lesson, the children were able to identify parts of the flower in O'Keeffe's work.
We practiced using our arms to make large and long painting strokes before we began painting these.
Happy Mother's Day, Moms! You are all appreciated for everything you ARE.
