Seasonal Silhouettes

Second graders learned about silhouettes and created a seasonal scene. 

They started with black paper for the ground and used a black sharpie and marker to draw a tree.

Other elements were added and a paper punch was used to glue expressive eyes. 

Silver sharpies finished their work.
