Super proud of my first graders. I haven't taught this lesson in a few years, but it seemed appropriate as we are headed into November/Fall/Thanksgiving.
Students had to learn what a still life was. I asked them could a basket of puppies be a still life? Could I, the teacher be a still life? The best way I told them to remember, was whatever a still life was, it couldn't be alive! They caught on right away.
The fruit is removable. Students created a pocket bowl so they were able to rearrange their fruit--put it in, take it out, move it to the left, make the grapes higher etc etc. They turned out great. These are the ones that were chosen to hang on the only display wall in our office!!!
