My good friend just did a lesson with her class on the agricultural products grown in Texas. This is the final product. I love it! Students drew their fruit or vegetable on manila paper and watercolored it or colored it with oil pastel crayons (the oil pastels are what made the colors so vivid). Then they added seeds, yarn, and glitter just for fun.
She also made this mural based on the book Don't Eat the Bluebonnets by Ellen Leventhal.
