Pirates and Vikings, 3rd Grade
My third grade students created these really awesome ships today. They had the choice of making either a Viking ship or a Pirate one. Before beginning, we compared and contrasted the difference between both types of ships. Generally, Viking ships had only one sail, while Pirate ships had many. Also, Viking ships often looked like a dragon, while Pirate ones did not. For this project, I had them use watercolors to paint ocean colors onto a piece of paper. While this paper was drying, we drew and cut out the boat. The sails were then cut out of scrap pieces of construction paper. By the time we finished the boat, our watercolor paper had mostly dried. We tore this paper into many pieces, and collaged them together to create the ocean. Everything was glued to a piece of construction paper. After everything had been glued, details were added using oil pastels.
