2nd Grade Trees, 3rd Grade Rainforest Pics, Kindergarten Mobiles

2nd graders are learning the difference between realistic and abstract.  We have been looking at the artist Gustav Klimt and his painting, "Tree of Life."  Students created their own abstract, swirly trees using matt board, Model Magic, and bling!
