Wednesday Works - Molas - 3rd grade

When I used this lesson last year I also introduced analogous color groups.   Since I plan on using a different lesson for my colors later in this year, I let the color choices up to the students this time around.

An introduction of the country and the people where Molas come from (Panama and the San Blas Islands) leads us into the lesson, the fabric examples I have catch the student's interests.  But nothing beats the reactions I get when I start cutting through the layers to reveal just what happens after the second and third pieces are cut.    When they see it, that's when they really see it!

Have a great day!
