Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on Art activities that link with our new topic, ‘Natural Disasters’. We will begin with a craft that involves a little measuring, cutting and colouring. However, do not be fooled into thinking that all of the art activities will be like this! As the weeks continue you will be building up to a very exciting and explosive art finale!
Lesson 1 – Layers of the Earth
In this lesson you will make a Layers of the Earth craft. As mentioned above, it does require a little measuring, cutting and colouring. First of all, if you do not have coloured paper in your house, use white paper and colour it in the specific colours. Secondly, if you do not have a compass to draw the circles, find circular objects in your house that could help you. Thirdly, if you do not have a brass paper fastener, you can use a hair grip by putting it through the holes in the paper and then bending the two legs (it may not be perfect, but it should give a similar effect). Finally, enjoy!
