2nd Grade: Winter Landscapes
The 2nd grade students learned all about LANDSCAPES. Students were able to find the three parts of a landscape: foreground, middle ground and background in many different examples. They learned that the objects in the foreground or front are the largest and closest to the bottom, the objects that are a little smaller are in the middle ground, and the objects that are the smallest and farthest up are in the background. Students also learned about the COOL COLORS and discussed what kind of mood or feeling they get from these colors. Student then were able to create their very own landscape and created DEPTH by using different size trees and making sure they placed the largest trees in the foreground and the smaller trees in the background.
