November December 2011 Red Rectangular Robots

This collage project reinforces color and shape recognition while building on spacial relationships; top, middle and bottom. Perfect for Kindergarten and 1st grade students, can be expanded to provide more of challenge older students. (These art pieces were created by Kinders).
Part I: Pre cut red rectangles and squares, students create a basic "human" robot form. One head at the top, body in the middle, two arms out of the sides of the body (not the head) two legs located below the main body.
Part II: Using color pencils, stickers and additonal colors students add addtional details to their robots. What does your creation do, does it have special powers or skills. If time permits students can make a pet for their art robot.
