The first graders have been learning about TEXTURE!
First we played the Texture Game with a video I found here.
(Thanks MiniMatisse... the kiddos loved this, and I don't think they'll ever forget the terms!)
This helped give the students an introduction to the terms tactile texture, and visual texture.
You're fantastic first grader should be able to tell you that...
Visual Texture is texture you can SEE!
Tactile Texture is texture you can TOUCH!
Next, they got to make some tactile texture using paper sculpture.
Each student got to choose their color, and their challenge was to tear, or cut out, a line or a shape, and then repeat that all over their small square base. By doing so, they created a tactile texture!
HOW COOL ARE THESE???
