|Students learned about random weaving as they created a nest from materials such as newspaper, yarn, and rafia.|
We watched some fotage of real robins building nests. It was fun to compare the real nests to our random weaving artworks.
|We had to use problem solving to figure out how to combine the materials in a way that looked good and wouldn't fall apart!|
|We looked closely at pictures of robins in order to figure out how to draw them. We painted them with watercolor.|
|When the paintings dried, we cut the birds out and added them to the nest.|
|Some spring blossoms were added as a finishing touch!|
