oh collage...

i still love collaging. in highschool, i collaged my notebooks and binders. one of my bedroom walls was completely collaged with magazine cutouts. thankfully i don't teach art anymore because my students had really collaged one too many times.

but i still find ways to collage in my classroom. today i made this bulletin board out of our scrap paper box and the kids researched pollution and wrote facts on shapes to add to the board. (all from scraps) it was a great science class.


left, we have the forest with facts about fires written on fire and facts about car pollution written on the cars. the boys LOVED making cars.


below, this is supposed to be a magnified view inside this building where the
black TV has a fact about radiation...? hmm...




my favourite is the island across the ocean with a volcano on it. man, i love collage in any form.

You are DEFINITELY the queen collaging... There is a still a 12 inch border on one wall in your old bedroom... I can't bring myself to take down the whole thing.. you were always amazing to me ... and still are :)

I think the black TV is actually a signal for some kind of TV hero. Like the bat signal, but a TV. Maybe this kid is trying to tell you something.

I read this post in my google reader last week, but forgot to come and comment. I am a lover of collages, and this one is no exception - way to go on reusing the scrap paper! I love that you keep the scrap to do stuff like this. You should get an "eco-teaching" award, among many other types of awards because you are so terrific! WAHOO!
