Poppy Art – Remembrance Day, Memorial Day, Armistice Day, Anzac Day.

A ‘Fun with a Ruler’ art project for your students to complete leading up to Remembrance Day / Memorial Day / Armistice Day / Anzac Day. This project involves your students ruling straight lines between 2 dots on a template, to create a poppy. Your students could write something in the petals before colouring (eg facts, opinons, a 4 line poem, etc). Display them together to make a 'poppy patchwork quilt'. Included: ♦ Template – black dots ♦ Template – light grey dots ♦ Example – black/white ♦ Instructions ♦ Teacher notes Level of Difficulty: Your students need to be able to use a ruler to draw straight lines between 2 points (the curves are made with straight lines … it’s like magic!). The design looks more complicated than it actually is. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult. A pattern is repeated 8 times. Instructions: Simple, clear, easy-to-follow instructions are provided. One instruction per page (image and a sentence). Display the instructions via a data projector if you have access to one. Otherwise print and enlarge them and/or demonstrate on an enlarged template. Equipment: You need a ruler and a pen (black works best). Something to colour with (eg coloured pencils, watercolours, felt tip markers, chalk pastels, dye, etc) Size: The artwork measures approximately 17cm x 17cm. Designed on A4 size paper. Keywords: string art, parabolic curves, math, geometry, patterns, war, symbolism, veteran, © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Holiday Brag TagsQuick View

Holiday Brag Tags

Brag tags are a great way to add some positive reinforcement into your behavior management plan. Use them to encourage or reward your students with your holiday activities. Included Back to School Happy Birthday Fall Halloween x2 Election Day Remembrance Day Veteran's Day x2 Thanksgiving x2 Happy Holidays x2 Winter Happy New Year x2 Martin Luther King Day x2 100th Day Groundhog Day Valentine's Day x2 Presidents' Day x2 Pi Day St. Patrick's Day x2 Spring Earth Day x2 Memorial Day Summer Last Day of School There are 30 of each brag tag per page. There are 34 different holiday brag tags. Each brag tag measures 2 inches high by a little over an inch wide. These are best when printed in color, I have tried to provide options as I know that some of the tags are ink heavy. If you like this product and have a suggestion for a different brag tag, I'm more than happy to add it. Students in my classroom keep their brag tags on a chain, but you could use ribbon or yarn as well. I let them wear them on the day that they have earned the tag and the tags stay in school until the end of the year at which point they can take them home. They are so proud of their accomplishments and can't wait to wear these throughout the school so they can show off what they have achieved!
