Evergreen Trees





 My Grade One class made these patterned evergreen trees today.
 I am loving how they look clustered together on my bulletin board. 


 This was actually a 2 day project.  We spent the first session mixing and painting paper 3 tints of green by adding white to our green paint.  On day two we cut out large triangles and used chalk to make different patterns on each tree. White construction paper was used for the snow and chalk was also used to make snowflakes.

  2. For the trees, did you use construction paper or copy paper?

    1. We painted on cartridge paper. It's a little more durable than copy paper.

  3. What is Cartridge paper? Is this something I can get at a store like Walmart?

  4. Did you use a greyish paper for the background or was that painted also?

    1. It was light blue construction paper.

  5. The sidewalks can present a slight risk factor. One side effect is that often the roots up lift the sidewalk. Another is that you have an open tree well. Important link
