Nature Collection Collage
When we went for a walk in the woods around the school, we collected many colorful things. We sorted them by color and then glued them on paper that matched the colors. We had to look carefully to find the different colors.
We had some milkweed fluff and it reminded someone of feathers. Mrs. Knee thought we could use the leaves and sticks and pine cones to make a turkey. We used crushed leaves for the body. Big leaves and pine cones were for the big feathers. We used lots of milkweed fluff too. We had to add that outside because it was floating everywhere. Max had the idea for the eye. Can you tell how we made it?

What a lovely blog and so heavily visited, I am pleased that I have found you. The work shown is a delight, such vibrant colours!
My school blog is at www.hawesps.posterous.com and this was our first year, we need visits from six more States to get the set, guess what NH is one of them! if you could visit that would be kind. My wife teaches K/1/2 and her blog, that features a lot of art work is www.middlehampri1.posterous.com
I think you guys have snow now, in England it is grey and damp ... nothing new. Hope that you all enjoy the new year and keep producing work of this fabulous quality.

What nice patterns you made using all of your nature items. Isn't it fun to make "something out of nothing". Nice imagination! I guess the eye is an acorn cap!

Shaun told me that he used milkweed to help make the turkey. You all worked together to make a beautiful creation!

Wow, Kinderkids! This is a GORGEOUS turkey. He is way too beautiful to eat on Thanksgiving. I hope you have a great turkey day. In Canada, we had our Thanksgiving in October.

Hi Kinderkids and Mrs Knee,
What a magnificent masterpiece! Your turkey collage is brilliant! We wish we had such a variety of natural materials to choose from. You've used such creativity and imagination!
We're not familiar with the types of plants you have growing in the woods near your school. We initially thought that a mushroom or a piece of fungi was used your the eye but after doing some research, we think that the eye is an acorn. Are we right?
