To help familiarize ourselves with the fruit we would be exploring, we did some still life drawing and watercoloring of oranges on Tuesday. This required much focus and attention as children observed the shape of the oranges and placement of the bowl as they carefully formed circles on their paper. They then watercolored their drawings. This was a great example of intentional drawing as well as a fun way to practice perspective.
Coming up in our next blog, we will compare various ways to make orange juice. Will one method be easier than others? Which will produce the most juice? And most importantly, which method produces the best tasting juice?
