This was an art project in another kindergarten class in my school. I altered only one thing. The teacher had a pre-printed sheet of insects and animals for the children to color and cut out to put in the “tall, tall grass.” (based on the book of the same title). I kept the focus on insects and had my students draw the creatures.
This is an easy project.
- Provide each student with a large dark blue sheet of construction paper, a half a sheet of large green construction paper (cut length wise) for grass, a sentence strip or white strip for writing and a piece of white paper for drawing insects.
- Have the students cut the top of the grass paper to form the grass blades. Glue down on blue paper.
- Glue white sentence to top of blue paper. Write “In the tall, tall grass.”
- Draw and cut out insects and creatures to put in the grass.
Here are some insects to draw for the grass:
