These fun scarecrows were done by the 1st-3rd grade Montessori students. During the first class, we learned about different types of textures. Students learned words like bumpy, smooth, rough, and several others to help reinforce the concept. We used a sponge to dab the moon and give it texture, while we did crayon rubbings to create another type of texture on the arms and hat. After the straw and bird were added, if students had time they stamped some fall leaves onto the background. This is a great project to show students many different types of texture used in artworks!
