The Monkeys and I talked about symmetry and what it means to draw a still life. We found symmetry in the leaves they picked up and we also found symmetry in our bodies. We put the idea of what is symmetrical to use when we created our candy bags! The compositions The Monkeys made when putting their candy together was great too!
We didn't do any tasting in class, but it was fun to talk about flavors and more importantly, why and on what occasions we give and eat candy. Halloween is coming up and so this was a fun step towards getting ready for the holiday! It was mentioned that we also give and eat candy on Easter. We'll have to wait a few more months for that one :)
The Monkeys had great questions for their friends in Greenland.
Nikke asked, "What kind of candy do they have in Greenland?
Minea asked, "Do they like our drawings?"
Lotta asked, "Have they eaten our candy before?"
