The inspiration for this project are those awesome wonders of nature called cacti - and we’ll include some other succulents too while we’re at it! While working on this project many art terms or tips can be incorporated, like "drawing what you see", balance, rule of odd numbers, and rule of thirds. Students can follow step-by-step, or vary it by picking their own cacti/succulent types to draw. Handouts are available for ideas.
K-1 students create three pots, and then plant a cactus or succulent in each one.
2-12 students create one pot with overlapping cacti or succulents.
