As I drew the hearts for the students, one of them said that I was a really good heart teacher. I thought he said art at first, but he said "heart", which I thought was cute. My heart drawing skills are finely honed from years of practice, lol.
I then gave the students another plate and had the ones that made warm colors make a cool color background and the ones that made a cool color heart a warm color background. We then glued the hearts to our new background letting some of the hearts bend up to make a 3d effect. One of my students began crying until I explained it was supposed to stick up. Then she was happy. We attached a wire to the backs of the plate so they could be hung up.
The hearts had a really nice texture because of the colored tissue paper and the students were in awe of how it looked like paint when they were through. I told them to see if their parents could guess how they made them. Overall, it was a nice 2 day project that kept them engaged and enthusiastic. That's all I can ask for. It was a good day.
