Alien Landscapes

What might you see on an undiscovered planet? 
Third graders have some ideas! 
  To design their chalk pastel landscapes, children made stencils to create a foreground, middle ground, and background. 
Next we wondered, "What might live there"?  In no time at all, different sized aliens came to life!  (The energy in the room was out of this world:)
By placing smaller aliens in the background, third graders created the illusion of deep space.

We finished our landscape unit by going on a class trip to the James A. Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  We were able to see many landscapes by the Bucks County Impressionists including Daniel Garber's mural, The Woodland Watershed. What a great day!!!
