Lady Bug Collage

Eric Carl is one of my favorite authors/illustrators. We read a lot of his books in first grade. We focus on his illustrations and how they were made through the use of collage.

With this particular lesson I read the book " The Grouchy Lady Bug" using the document camera.

The background was made using liquid starch and tissue paper on top of a square sheet of drawin paper.

We used construction paper to make simple shapes to create a lady bug on top.

We reveiwed how to dulpicate shapes for the spots on the bug. These collages were attached to a back sheet of paper for a final touch. This lesson took about 40 minutes. However a few classes it took an additional class period.
