Action Figure Results

This was a week for 4th graders to finish up a couple of projects. The action figures that we started 2 weeks ago are up in the display case. I posted this lesson earlier.

Using Matisse as a model, I asked children to design color systems that they could explain in each of their background sections. It was fun to walk around and have them articulate their thinking (some being more complicated than others).
This was early on when their figures were on the drying racks. I made these racks last summer out of strips of wood (I forget the kind) that the lumber yard recommended and window screening. The racks stack so I can accommodate as many kids as necessary.
