Geometric Shaped Houses by Grade 1

First graders at Wood End and Birch Meadow learned about the art element of shape.  There are organic shapes and geometric shapes, but we focused on geometric shapes.  We drew and cut out many different geometric shapes that we thought would be best to create and "build" a house.  We then glued the shapes on colored construction paper.  Once dry, the students added detail using sharpie marker and then colored in using construction paper crayons.
