This lesson was inspired by these wonderful collages at 'Poppy Cat News'. It is a similar lesson to this one I did a few years back. This time I just had my grade ones draw a tree, beginning with a giant letter Y shape and adding more branches from there. These were painted black before adding torn tissue paper pieces in warm colours for the leaves. We also added some green for grass or bushes. I wish we had also added blue pieces for the sky also to add more cool colours.
