StArt - Ten Gallon Bart

I love Ten Gallon Bart. It's an exciting read with lots of fun characters & text. Instead of hand drawn illustrations, the book shows the story by creating the scenery & characters with collage. Again, I love it - as much for the fun pictures as for the story. So for this StARt the kids created their own scenes using a collage technique.

I layed out a variety of things for the kids to use in their collages.

Mr. T said he made a cow fish, a purple fish & a polka dot fish.

Mr. T also made a penguin. He sprinkled salt on streams of glue for a snowy effect.

Capt. N made a guy sledding, using his favorite color orange. He made snowflakes in the sky by rolling up balls of foil. He also used salt for the snow.
