After my 5th grade students did contour drawings of their shoes on 9" x 12 " paper, I gave them 12" x 18" brown paper. Using the bottom of their shoes and tempera paint, they printed around the edge of the paper. Some used their tread print in a random manner, some used a patterend approach. After the prints were dry, the drawings were mounted in the middle of the printed paper.

have to check them again to see if they are active and get some of them
linked. Here are the lesson ideas that were sent in so far:
