3rd grade Rodeo ’16

This year for Rodeo, I challenged myself so that every.single.class!! was working on a different project. Though it was difficult to keep up with 30 different lessons all running simultaneously, it definitely made choosing the projects for the District Rodeo Art show much easier.


This group worked on drawing their cacti from a worm’s eye view, meaning from the bottom looking up. Then they used water colors in cool colors to gradiate the color on the cactus.


This group used glue lines and warm colors to draw a desert sunset. They paid very close attention to the lights and shadows on the cactus to give more realism to their drawings. 


This group had math integrated into their lessons, when we folded the paper to better have them know where they should be drawing, we discussed quadrants and other items that had “quad” in them. Then we drew our farms very small because they were very far away. We drew ears of corn in the foreground really large, because they are much closer.


This group made abstract roosters using black glue and watercolor.
