I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Especially ice cream cones made 6 scoops high with tints and shades and a cherry on top!
This deliciously fun art project was created by our SWEET Second Graders! This lesson was inspired by one I found on Pinterest! Here is the link! Our Second graders loved this lesson from start to finish.
We got started this lesson by created value using one color! After choosing an ice cream flavor, students got started mixing white (tints) and black (shades) to their color (hue) to create a value scale. Here is a look at our second graders creating their color value scales.
2C reviewing value on day 2
On our second meeting day, we cut out our cone and ice cream scopes. We arranged our scopes from light (top) to dark (bottom) and collaged them onto our white background paper. We made them overlap and some even made their ice cream look melty or wiggly. Once our 6 scopes were glued down, students could add decorative toppings! Hole punches and scrap paper were used to create colorful or chocolate sprinkles. Don’t forget the cherry on top!
Enjoy our Tints and Shades with a Cherry on Top!
We all wanted to make a trip to Uncle Ed’s Creamery for some homemade ice cream after this lesson!
