This week first and second graders studied geometric and organic shapes. We used tools to create a series of these shapes that overlapped one another. Each student was responsible for the vocabulary (organic, geometric and overlap). After the shapes were created, the students outlined them with oil pastel and then filled in them in with watercolor paint. They were required to choose a different color where the shapes overlapped. We finished off the projects by doing a CETA activity in which the students were broken into groups and asked to make geometric or organic shapes using their bodies.
