1. White paper inserts that fit into a CD case and Sharpie markers were handed out. The challenge for students was to draw a background for whatever their rubber bands were to be: curly hair, spaghetti, snakes. All options were open and discussed before beginning.
2. When complete, the rubber bands were placed on top of the drawing. Students had to figure out how many to place on the paper so that they filled the space, but didn't keep the CD case from closing.
Thanks so much to Claire, a 1st grader, for letting me share her beautiful artwork that brings a smile to my face!
