2nd Grade Eric Carle Spiders

Eric Carle Spiders 
2nd Graders were inspired by the author Eric Carle and his book The Very Busy Spider for their spider art project.  They learned the besides being an author Eric Carle is also an illustrator.  This means besides writing the words for books he also creates all the pictures for his books.  Rather than drawing his pictures Eric Carle collages his pictures by cutting and gluing beautiful colored papers.  Like Eric Carle students painted large sheets of paper with bright colors and learned about color mixing.  They were able to add different textures and designs in their paint by using different tools.  They then learned about the parts of a spider and cut up their papers into different shapes and glued them together to collage their own Very Busy Spiders
