- Draw a tracer in the shape of a coniferous tree on the 4 cm x 9 cm (2" x 3.5") piece of paper.
- Draw a tracer in the shape of a deciduous tree on the 5 cm x 5 cm (2.5" x 2.5") piece of paper.
- Remember to check the list and sketches that the class made with your teacher.
- Cut out both shapes.
- Place the deciduous tree tracer on one side of your black paper.
- Line it up so it is half on and half off the black paper.
- Trace the half that is on the black paper.
- Repeat on the opposite side of the paper so that the trees are a mirror image of each other.
- You should have half a deciduous tree on opposite sides of your black paper.
- Next, use your coniferous tracer to trace two trees on the other sides of the black paper.
- This time trace the whole tree.
- Trace them so that the trees are a mirror image of each other.
- Carefully cut out the four trees.
- Glue the large piece of black paper to a piece of white construction paper.
- Place each tree beside the matching cut out space.
- Check carefully to be sure that you have placed each tree beside its matching shape and that it is facing the correct direction to be a mirror image.
- When you are pleased with the way your trees are placed use your Crayola glue stick to carefully glue each shape in place.
- Glue your design to a piece of black construction paper to frame it.
- When you are finished look at your design with fresh eyes.
- What do you notice?
- Can you see different objects than trees?
- What do you like best about your design?
- Does your design show the difference between coniferous and deciduous trees?
