        Subject: RE: bones to Worms?

        Just finished an "underground drawing" project with 1st and 2nd graders in
        conjunction with their science unit on "pebbles, sand, and silt". They
        first did texture rubbings of all sorts of textured things like sandpaper,
        wood, lace, Lego surfaces, embossed wallpaper, screen, etc. on various
        colors of lightweight paper until they had a nice selection of papers.
        These were then cut into rocks and pebbles and arranged in layers on
        construction paper. We talked about plants being above ground with their
        roots stretching downward through various layers as well as worms and their
        tunnels, perhaps mouse holes. We ended up spending several art sessions on
        these, finishing them off with subtle flourishes of gold glitter. They are
        hanging in the hallway with the children's sentences asking "Can you find
        three worms?" and "My drawing shows a mouse in her hole, a worm and gold!"
        and the like. Our principal is really proud of these.
