Kindergarten Sail Boats

November 20, 2012

As part of our learning standards in Visual arts for Kindergarten, each student must be able to draw a circle, square, triangle, oval, and rectangle.  We also work at trying to recognize how shapes can be arranged to make objects.  To emphasize this, Kindergarten created sail boats using trapezoids and various sized triangles to form the boats.  We used buttons to create the port holes on the side of the boat.

The kids really enjoyed this project.  It also is a great project to help work on the cutting and gluing skills that take a few months to master.  A dot is a lot, a glob is a slob and a thin line is just fine!
