What I love about activities like this is how their creativity really comes through. Look how different each image of the leaves are. Some did blobs, some did little dots, some made patterns...each and every one is unique which I think is such an important lesson. I've been in classrooms where teachers dictate what color to make the sky, the tree, the turkey--whatever the subject is. I can't bring myself to do that because I selfishly love to see what they come up with on their own. I limited their color choices, just because it was easier to give them palettes of certain colors--but their vision was all their own!
My favorite reasoning!
