Texture and Shapes, First Grade

This is usually a project I do with First Grade in October but I just came across the pictures and think it is one of those magic moments for young students.  I have a stack of texture plates that I got from either Nasco or Dick Blick.  The students place the texture plate under their paper and rub with crayons. For the students that have never done a "Rubbing" it is a true magic moment.  I wish I had the time to take them outside and find texture on concrete, bricks or trees.  The next class I use plastic bottles, corks, and plastic type lid to stamp colors.  I asked the staff to save laundry tops, they work great with the plastic lip for young students to hold on to.
