I was reviewing the concept of near and far (placement and size) with my 1st graders as we did some winter landscapes. It occurred to me that as pretty as the trees were, the pictures were a little... "Blah". So, we created carolers to be in the foreground. It was a cute way to finish up this project, and the kids were really pleased with the results. It allowed us to work in a little direction following and paper sculpture skills- the arms bend out and give a 3-D effect.
