Using a watermelon slice as inspiration, student will experiment with basic shapes.
What You Need:
What You Do:
- Red Construction Paper
- Black or Brown Paint
- Green Paint
- Real Watermelon Slice
- Real watermelon seeds (optional)
- First students draw a large triangle or half circle on a piece of red 9X13 construction paper.
- Using a Q-tip®, they can dip into the brown or black paint and place dots onto the red paper. These dots represent the seeds. Alternatively, students can glue real seeds onto the paper.
- Students then take a rind from a slice of watermelon (of course they have to eat the watermelon first!) and dip one side into the green paint.
- They can then place the painted rind onto one side of the triangle - making a print.
- Students can then cut out their "watermelon slice".
