Culture Integrations in Art

In third grade, we created original texture templates using tagboard, based on the theme of "Cultures". Currently, the third grade students are reading fiction stories about cultures in "Reading Street", and 2 of the stories, "Suki's Kimono" & "Jalapeno Bagels" served as our jumping-off point for imagery. We looked at kimono fabrics (see title link) on the Smartboard, and discussed images you might see in Mexican/Spanish designs, before careful cutting and gluing of their templates.Students were very creative with their crayon rubbings, rotating their templates, offsetting colors on the same page, creative borders, etc. Just like snowflakes, no 2 were alike!
