Questions for Exploration

-  What do you notice from the painting?

-  What shapes are in this painting?

-  What colors do you see in this painting?

-  What happened in this painting?


The students will think about four objects they value and four spaces to keep the objects.

-  What are your valuable objects?

-  Why are these objects valuable to you?

-  If you make four spaces to keep the objects you value, what colors will you use for the spaces?

-  How could you arrange each space?

What will you do?

-  Choose four different colored pieces of paper. They are going to be your spaces for your valuable objects.

-  Cut out each colored piece of paper (5" x 5"), then arrange them as you like.

-  Glue them on a piece of blank paper.

-  Draw and color four valuable objects in your brainstorming. Each size of the object is supposed to be in 5" x 5".

-  Cut out the drawings, then glue them on each colored piece of space. 


We encourage parents have a storytelling time about their valuable and favorite objects with the children's collage.
