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.
