1st Grade: Seahorses

1st Grade: Art and Literacy

The seahorse collages are based on the book Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle.



First, we painted with a variety of sponges and stampers to create beautiful texture sheets. 




Next, shapes were cut out and the seahorse began to take shape. 




Finally,we added coral, seaweed, and a starfish. 

The students loved painting with a Q-tip to add details.


The students created beautiful and colorful seahorses! 

This unit of art culminated with each class writing Mr. Carle a letter. 

We are eager to send him our letters and hope to hear back from him soon.
