Spinning Webs in Grade 2
Exploring lines and surfaces in Maths has led the Grade 2’s to recognize, identify, and describe parts of lines and curves. They applied their discoveries to making spider webs in Art, by drawing horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines and curves. White card, pencils, 40cm rulers and colouring pencils were the tools used in this creative activity. The artists even managed to create optical illusions by alternating the direction the curves were facing (smiley face – sad face) and repeating the pattern throughout. Finally, to emphasize the pattern of lines and curves, the students used contrasting colours. As a result, the spider webs appear to have rhythm and movement.
