Last week, Silas was very interested in recreating a rock art image he had seen. I took this inspiration to have all the children create their own rock art. Throughout the week, the children collected rocks, washed and dried them to prepare for the project. I brought in laminated construction paper to use a background. The children used their collected rocks to create images and structures. After they were complete, I photographed them and printed them out using a pocket printer. We will be continuing this project Monday (weather permitting). In addition, I usually have paper and materials to draw or color, this week we had paper and crayons.
