First Grade Snowmen

First graders learned the difference between two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork. We learned that two-dimensional artwork, even though it is flat can look three-dimensional. Enter Snowmen at Night, and Snowmen all Year.  We read both of these books in class digitally using a free website called www.wegivebooks.org. We looked carefully at the illustrations and noted how it looked like moonlight had landed on the snowmen. We also noted that the snowmen looked round because of this moonlight and because of the darker shadow. We drew our snowpeople in pencil, outlined in sharpie, colored in color pencil and used plain old white chalk board chalk for the snow.
