Here is our scratch board project with the 6th grade. We were working on Day of the Dead Skulls, but with the breaks in Nov we had a hard time getting them done. Also for some reason this year the 6th graders struggled with working on scratch board.

For this project I read the book Elmer by David McKee. I did a demo on how to draw the elephants and then we talked about patterns, and different colors we could add to make them colorful. The students then drew out their own elephants and colored them being in the Elmer's Day Parade.
Through a donation of another art teacher we were able to do Linoleum cuts this year with the art club. These turned out pretty good, the pictures are a little off color bc of the new camera taking these pictures, so sorry about the color. They look great in person.
