Fall has arrived! Why not highlight it with an Aboriginal Art project? The Aboriginal people often paint kangaroos, snakes, lizards and lots of symbols. Our theme will be a Fall Leaf. This is a great way to work with warm and cool colours. This very complete project helps you to initiate your students into Aboriginal Art. The students will be proud of all of their dots and surprised at their results.
Isn't it interesting that the solar symbol for aboriginals is a large circle with 8 small circles around it? That is quite an accomplishment considering most ancient civilizations didn't know about Neptune (and of course Pluto was a planet and then wasn't)
Aboriginal Art: to make it pre-k appropriate, maybe invite students to trace shapes from puzzles or other stencils, and then encourage them to dot around the traced line, and fill in the shape as wanted.
