I completed this lesson yesterday with my kindergartners. They painted the background the week before, which was difficult to explain to 5 year olds that they were not painting a picture, just painting the paper. Anyway, we survived that step. This week we are working on some different skills with collage. Paper tearing (this again completes boggles their mind-"you mean tear it, on purpose"), and cutting shapes. The steps are established but there is nothing cookie cutter about it-which I love! The penguins are all different sizes. They are all unique and super cute.
