3rd GRADE--Winter Landscapes

The students learned that a landscape is a picture of the land or any part of nature outside. They also learned what the foreground, middle ground and background is, and that by having these three parts it creates distance in a landscape. The foreground is in the front and these objects/people are the biggest. As you go into the middle and background things objects/people get smaller. We also discussed what feelings or words come to mind when they see or think of the cool colors. Students were able to use the cool colors for their sky. We brainstormed many different ideas for a winter landscape and students came up with their very own scene making sure to incorporate things that were in the foreground, middle ground and background. Finally students were able to use a variety of coloring supplies to add color to their landscapes.
