LE: Planet Prints

Zac R



LE's theme this year is space. As a way to make their planet reports more visually exciting, they incorporated illustrations of all the planets into their reports using various media. For these prints, students carved their planet on a styrofoam sheet using visual references to inform the surface design, and stamped it on black paper. As an option, they flicked white paint to add a starry effect. When students were done, they glued their illustrations and text in an accordion fold book and designed covers out of poster board. The top photo shows the finished products, which Jennie displayed beautifully for their space presentation.

LE: Intergalactic




As a way to tie into LE's space theme, we drew planets in oil pastel on black paper, and splattered white paint for the stars. Students had just gotten back fro
m the Planetarium so they were really excited to do this lesson, so much that one of them interrupted me while I was talking and asked if they could just start, lol! Note to self: stop lecturing.
