The other half need an additional 30 minutes to finish.
Fall has arrived! Why not highlight it with an Aboriginal Art project? The Aboriginal people often paint kangaroos, snakes, lizards and lots of symbols. Our theme will be a Fall Leaf. This is a great way to work with warm and cool colours. This very complete project helps you to initiate your students into Aboriginal Art. The students will be proud of all of their dots and surprised at their results.
