sweet sweet me....

Sixth grade students are completing their amazing candy drawings. 

Each student 'researched' candy towards finding one that reflects their own character.  While reflecting on the basic attributes of the candy, they explored on how words can have a double meaning.  This was a fun and creative way to throw in a little literacy into their art making.  Each student had to think....I am like a __________because like a ____________ I am_____________ when__________________________.
We began by simple but challenging contour line drawings of our candy.  Continued with value study and practicing controlling the pressure of our pencils and finished off with a third drawing, recoloring our candy with a new and creative design.
In the end their drawings, paragraphs and pictures, showed one complete sixth grade student.

See you back in the
