3rd Grade Positive/Negative Shape Leaves

3rd graders explored positive and negative shapes.  We watched this video:

Students than used a 5in by 5in square to create a leaf, having it touch all four sides. Students then cut out their leaf and traced into onto a black piece of paper.  I instructed students to trace around their 7-8 times having at least 3 go off the page.  Using silver paint students painted around the leaves.  On the second day of the lesson students used oil pastels to create a pattern inside the leaf.
