So the project was a mixed media folk art landscape. Knowing that the Mayor's time in my room could cause things to not go according to plan...I precut the fabric for the ground & the blue tissue paper for the sky....as well as boxed up the puzzle pieces & sticks for each table(I'd normally not do all of this). I was mostly interested in seeing students' construction. After students had finished gluing all their pieces down, I gave them a plate of red, yellow, orange, and green tempera paint to go over their puzzle pieces. If students finished with painting their leaves, they were allowed to get wood circles to create pumpkins.
Here is Mayor Dean's work!
