Continents Art Activity

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hello. I was wondering if anyone has an idea for an art project about the continents. i teach 1st graders and I was thinking of paper mache-ing a globe. I've done it with 3rd graders but not sure about 1st graders. does anyone have another suggestion? or has tried paper mache with 1st graders?



Thanks

I have black line masters of all the continents. We color and label them then glue to a big blue sheet of paper.

Paper Mache

We have a Kindergarten teacher who paper maches turkeys in November with his Kinders so as long as you go slowly and patiently (expect a mess!) first graders can definately do it!

Another option would be to paper mache one big globe and have the kids use model magic (it's very light) to create the continents and then using a heavy glue (like gorilla glue?) glue the continents on the globe. The only problem there is the kids can't take it home.

Torn art continents

We really study the size and shape of each continent and tear them out in 7 different colors and mount on a piece of 12X18 blue construction paper. We include the names of the oceans, equator, and a compass rose.
I would be happy to post more indepth directions if there is interest.

Grocery Bag Globes

We make grocery bag globes which is work, but is easier than paper mache. Take larger size brown bags from the grocery store and stuff with newspaper until full. Tape closed and push corners from the bottom of the bag down to make as round as possible. It won't be perfectly round but fairly close. Paint all blue. Then glue continents on. I even hang them from the ceiling by wrapping yarn around it like a package. Once everything is on they look great.

"Punch-out" continents

Hi,

I teach 2nd, but this may work with 1st, too. I copy black line masters of all the continents on different colors of construction paper. Then the kids lay on the carpet and use a push pin to punch out the borders of each continent. If they punch holes really close together, after they are finished, it will punch out really easily like a perforated edge. Then they glue these on large blue ovals.

I found that if you really take the time to emphasize safety with the push pins, this project works great for primary kids. Some of the borders of the continents are difficult to cut with their fine-motor skills and scissor skills, so doing it this way allows the continents to look really nice. Also, my kids think it is soooo fun! We take about 2 weeks to do this project, and my kids usually ask if we can do Social Studies twice a day during this time period.
