Insect Wings in Watercolor
Draw, Paint, and Salt
- Have older students help younger students.
- Keep the designs inside the wings large and simple to accommodate the fat lines of the oil pastels.
- To save on paint, have students share palettes. Very little watercolor paint is needed. We used Blick Liquid Watercolors.
- Make sure to have a mini-lesson on too little water versus too much.
Learning about symmetry at Math Is Fun
My students couldn’t get enough of playing with this symmetry doodler. It’s one of the best I’ve found online. It has so many fun options to explore.
See below for some of my students’ experiments.
