Seven Blind Mice - Paper Collages
Kindergarten and 1st grade did a fabulous job with these collages! We read the book Seven Blind Mice which is a great book using color words and how we perceive things differently. The book is about 7 blind mice that are out exploring what an unusual something is that is in their path. They all have their ideas of what different parts of the "something" is, but it is not until the end that the white mouse looks at the whole and discovers it is an elephant.
We blind folded each other and felt different items in the class trying to determine what the objects were (which they LOVED) before we began creating.
I allowed my student to either create a piece of the elephant or the whole elephant and add the seven blind mice. We looked at how to write a title of a book and they made a label with the title of the book to glue on their piece.
