I was working on a printmaking project with Kindergarten and 1st graders. I cut the rim off styrofoam plates and we used the circular part for our images. The students used a dull pencil to create lines in the styrofoam. They drew an image of their family onto the plate. Once they drew the image they came up to the printing station and choose three different colors of paper and printed on each sheet. They were excited to take two home immediately and save one for the final group project. Messy, yes. Proud students, most definitely.
