I love GERMS!!! 
Well, not really. But, I love these germs creations that kindergarten imagined up!
We looked up images of real germs under a microscope. We studied their shapes, textures & colors, 
Students chose their favorite germ colored construction paper, drew the shape, emphasized it with a black marker line, colored them and added life like eyes. 
Good job cARTinals. 




Watch them GO!

My Personal Artwork 

Parts of a Mushroom

 Color Sheet

If this project has little time allowed, then I teach them about mushroom's role in the environment. 
They work as decomposers, taking the dead plants and animals and pulling out any left nutrients from them to grow. They do not need/use sunlight. They do not grow from a seed, instead from spores that are released in the air from the gills of other mushrooms. 
Many mushrooms are unsafe to eat. Some mushrooms attack other plants. 
There is a world of knowledge out there on Youtube and the WWW about these amazing "plants". 
 Sophi G./Third grade practice 

Lightly Draw out a scene with Mushrooms. 
I had a checklist of what my students were required to have on drawing:
-At least 3 mushrooms
-At least one from a perspective of underneath (showing gills)
-At least one from a perspective of above ( showing cap)
-Use of Overlapping
-Added details in picture (grass, bugs, animals)

 Outline with a permanent black marker
 Fill in background with fat scribbles or dot using a color scheme. 
Keep them close and big. 
It helps later if you outline the outside rim of the paper too.
 Water down paper starting at top and working down to get the marker to smear. 
 I had added some white areas ahead of time with crayon to see how it looked in the end after the water. This is the "resist"
