4th Grade- Solar Systems

Each year the 4th graders study the solar system.  One of my favorite projects is to teach the students how to make planets that look three dimensional.  They learn how to make a circle look like a sphere and then how to make things look as if they are moving through space with simple techniques using paint and chalk pastels.  I love these!

  1. These look terrific. I’ll bet your kids are pleased that they’ve learned (and mastered) such a cool technique
