The 2nd grade students created there own Chinese scrolls. They learned that the Chinese people were the first to invent paper. We also talked about the importance of scrolls to relay messages. We also discussed the importance of bamboo in the Chinese culture and how it is used for building, decoration and a food source. The students were able to use special Sumi paintbrushes to create their bamboo trees. We also reviewed coloring mixing and the students were only given the primary colors and had to create the secondary colors by mixing their own colors.
