For this lesson the 3rd grade will be learning how to draw hot air balloons. The 3rd grade will also be using knowledge that they've learned from past art projects. They will be decorating and coloring their balloons with shapes and lines like they did in The Dot. Drawing a smaller balloon in the distance and show space like when they drew trees in their warm/cool landscapes. And they will be drawing their baskets in 2-Dimensional Forms like their bowls from Gambia.
When they finish coloring their bowls the students will cut them out and then sponge paint clouds onto a new blue piece of paper. Then the students will glue their balloons down and draw lines for the rope.
