Space, 2nd Grade

I had my second graders draw space last week. We began by painting white stars on black paper. Then, I had the students draw planets, rockets, stars, and even aliens on small pieces of scrap white paper. We colored all of these things with oil pastels. Finally, we cut all of these things out and glued it onto our black paper.

These turned out so awesome! Second Graders are always so creative.


  1. The black paper really makes the drawings stand out! Very creative indeed! I bet the boys really enjoyed this especially?

  2. Thanks, Yes the boys did especially love this project. Girls liked it too, but the boys were especially enthusiastic .
