Our circle conversation led us to lines.
We looked for lines on our playground and found there was no shortage. Almost everywhere we looked there were lines.
We even found lines that were made from shadows. Some of our friends wanted to trace the shadow lines made by our fence.
The children also made lines using sidewalk chalk. They made, "short" and "long" lines, "straight" and "curvy" lines. They made every kind of line they could think of.
In our studio we supplied black paper, rulers, and oil pastels. The children used the edge of the ruler to make straight lines. We talked about "horizontal", and "vertical" lines. We talked about the different shapes we can make with lines .
