Imaginary Jungles

Inspired by the jungles of Henri Rousseau’s imagination, my grade four students used modeling clay to ‘paint’ their own imaginary scenes. Students loved this project because, let’s face it, who doesn’t love to play with modeling clay. They had fun ‘inventing’ new colours by mixing the various clays together. Using texture to make their imaginary landscapes more interesting was another challenge that they faced. You can see their work in the Grade Four Gallery, their blogs or check out the video below.
