Each kindergarten class created one of the life size scarecrows pictured in the art display above.
We began by tracing one child from each class on a large piece of mural paper.
We discussed what SHAPES we found on the paper once the tracing was complete.
Then, working as a group, each class made decisions about specific COLORS and DETAILS they would like to include on their scarecrow. They worked well together gluing small pieces of torn construction paper into each area making sure to OVERLAP each piece.

The next week, the students created the vegetables for the garden by choosing and cutting the appropriate SHAPES and COLORS.  They also cut long, thin strips of paper for the straw hands, feet, and hair.

Scroll down to see a close-up of each scarecrow.
