Basically, I had the students draw at least five hills onto their papers. I showed the students how to do this. Then I asked the students to create a Japanese Palace on one of the top hills. (I showed students various ways to make their buildings look Japanese). Then students were asked to either add a river or a road into their pictures. Finally, students were asked to draw a farmers house and a few crops. To complete our drawings, everything was colored with oil pastels. A small piece of black paper was glued to the top and bottom to make it look like a scroll.
I just love the results of this project!
