2nd grade penguins

2nd graders learned about the lives of emperor penguins. We also learned that color has temperature. Red, yellow and orange look like they are warm. While blue and purple appear cold. After drawing our penguins and outlining in sharpie, we used watercolors to paint. We learned a watercolor technique called 'wet on wet' where paint runs and bleeds and colors mix together al out magically. Lastly, we sprinkled table salt on our penguins to soak up a tiny bit of watercolor and add some cool texture to our paintings.
