I am wrapping up our Eric Carle unit of study and these are some of the first finished. I have done these before at my other school, with a few changes. These collages are great for kinder cutting skills and especially following step by step instructions. They learn very quickly that if they don't listen their pictures may not turn out. For example, the shell, if it isn't glued with the "opening" facing one of the sides, there may not be enough room for the hermit crab at all. If it faces up, the hermit crab looks like it's fallen and it can't get up. (Sorry, I couldn't resist!!) But, there is also room for artistic decisions, like how to cut the seaweed, how much. Where to put the starfish. Can't wait to show off some of the other Eric Carle designs!
