First graders learned about making continuous lines and all the fun shapes that can be created by them! We learned about cityscapes and how we could create our own. Students began by using shapes that they cut out of construction paper and then they added a continuous line for detail! The book Follow the Line by Laura Ljungkvist was our inspiration.
