5th grade Word Bubble Designs - Adjectives!


This is an excellent design project for 5th graders and they sure got a kick out of designing a word bubble based on their personality! It was a nice way to get things moving in art class this year.
On day one, I provided students with a list of positive adjectives and asked them to choose one. We practiced drawing the letters in block/three-dimensional style for the remainder of class. On day two, we moved on to final drafts and I asked that a pattern be included in the bacakground or inside the letters. Everything was traced with a sharpie and crayons were used to fill in the letters. To finish it off, students chose an intermediate color to paint the background.
