Fun with Mondrian. This past September we studied Mondrian as one of our line study lessons and of course primary colors. Fourth and 5th graders started with a 7 by 5 piece of cardboard. They glued strips of cardboard in vertical and horizontal lines. I sprayed glue on them and covered them with heavy aluminum foil. Day two, the kids used black sharpie on all the raised lines and filled in the spaces with primary colors, leaving only a few silver spaces. Second and third grade made a crazy line Mondrian. They drew out 8-10 lines and then went back to each line and created a parellel line next to it. Those lines stayed black and all the spaces in between were filled with the primary colors.
Kinder and 1st grade did Mondrian animals, here are the animals we morphed into Mondrian animals; owl, sea horse, jelly fish, turtle, fish, duck, pig, and flamingo...aren't they cute!!
