Cartography Collage: Texas Regions. I created this 4th Grade project to merge artistic processes with Texas state Social Studies objectives. Students created layers of textures of poster paint and acrylic on construction paper using hair combs, sponges, and punchinella ribbon. A key goal in the assignment was to portray landforms indicative of the 4 Texas regions. Once elements had all dried, the regions and compass rose were stencil-traced, cut out, assembled, and pasted in place.
