As children worked with collage, they carefully selected and positioned their materials. They demonstrated flexible thinking as they used materials to represent different things. In the collage above, Cape cut a red leaf image to be the stop sign. Cate used a small gear as the center of her flower. Children also demonstrated creativity in the way they attached materials to the base. For example, Remy left parts of the arms and legs un-glued, so that they could move!
Jade - I'm making a guardian.
Remy - I'm making a creature. This (eye on top) is the head.
Lucas - I'm making a collage.
Jade - I'm making Mickey Mouse (the top three "snowflake" circles look like Mickey Mouse). My guard is at night (as she added the star shapes).
Lucas - (As he looks at his finished collage). Mine is an obstacle course. You start on the eye.
Cate - I'm making a guardian head and body (center flower pieces). A flower dress. It's a flower girl. A flower guardian.
