Space Art

We're finishing up our Space Unit.  Today the kids listen to a read aloud and completed the chart below.

Then, they completed Space Art.  I found this idea on another blog (Ugh, I can't remember which one) and HAD to try it with my class.  I LOVE when I don't have to give too many step by step directions.  I like when they create their own art and are happy with how it looks.  They traced their feet and hands.  Then they created the rest of their bodies.  They colored in crayon and added the black water color at the end.

Look how CUTE these came out.

I'm not sure why I'm smiling.  I'd be TERRIFIED!
