I only did this project with my “extra/bonus” 3rd grade that I see twice a week. We followed the directions from this website: Laugh, Paint, Create. It was a great project on cityscapes, warm and cool colors, and printmaking. And I will definitely repeat with next year’s 3rd grade class!
I let the students keep their printing plates for this project (I don’t always, it’s a big pain to wash and dry them all and make sure everyone gets them back). Here is how they stored their printing plates:
It’s taped to the back so they can slide it in and out and check it out later on when they’ve completely forgotten the process! 🙂
