I did these projects simultaneously with first graders. The first week we talked about patterns and glued all the pasta to create a radial pattern snowflake. While they worked on that, I also called one group at a time to paint the snowballs for their snowman. We used a half way blown up balloon as a stamp to stamp the paint onto the page. The next week they painted their pasta snowflake white and we read The Biggest Best Snowman. They then finished their snowman by adding all the details with construction paper crayons.

This project was based on the book Owl Moon. We drew and painted the owls the first week, then the second week we read the book and talked about how to create art by working together (incorporating the second grade collaborative art SOL). Each table was responsible for painting their tree and moon as a group. They then taped their owls onto their tree.
