Everyone learned about how a scroll is really a tight spiral. We used upcycled belt materials to create scrolls that we got to take home. William and Jill took portraits of every artist and their scroll to put in a big, beautiful book. This was good practice for what each grade's role was in the Heart Scroll-A-Thon.
Making a Spiral
Here is what each grade did for the final project:
First graders drew beautiful scrolls with pencil. They invented their own scroll on paper, using the mark to make the spiral.
Second graders put a piece of tracing paper over the first graders drawing and inked it using reds, pinks and purples.
Third graders took the drawings and tissue paper and interpreted them into the cut pieces of belt, which would later be made into scrolls.
Fourth graders took the knots that the third graders tied and used those pieces and the drawings to inspire a scroll.
And Fifth graders used the drawings to inspire beadwork on the scrolls that the fourth graders had rolled.
WHEW! It was AWESOME!
Thanks Steven, William, Jill, Bee and the 4Fives for all your hard work!
