The 1st graders were able to create a 3-D sculpture of a snowman made out of paper mache. We looked at the book, The Snowman, which does not have any words, only pictures. Students learned the importance of pictures in a book and each student took a turn to read a page in the book just by looking at the pictures. We also discussed the different between 3-Dimensional art and 2-Dimensional art. Students were able to pick out the finishing details for their snowman and cut out their mittens. Finally the students were able to view the movie, The Snowman. This movie, like the book, does not have any words only music. So the students were able to see again the importance pictures have. At the end of the movie we compared similarities and differences from the book and the movie.
