What 1st Grade Wants to Eat on Thanksgiving…


1st grade has been studying the art of Henri Matisse.  They learned that he turned to making pictures by “drawing with scissors” toward the end of his career when he was bed ridden and then in a wheelchair.  We looked at Matisse’s picture “Vegetables” and then I asked them to make a picture of what they wish they could eat on Thanksgiving using only paper and glue…I didn’t even let them have pencils.
