The 4th grade students learned what a landscape is and looked at many different examples of landscapes. They learned that a landscape is a picture of the land that can contain many different elements of nature. We also discussed the four parts of a landscape, which are: foreground, middle ground, background, and horizon line. The elements in a landscape that are bigger appear to be closer to us, or in the foreground. The elements that are smaller appear to be farther away and are in the middle or back ground. The 4th graders where able to choose different cool colors to create their winter landscape.
