I did a lesson with 2nd grade that was fun. 18"x24" newsprint and peeled
Prang crayons. We talked about texture, found it in the room, hunted for
rough, smooth, pebbly, etc. and made rubbings of them. Then we went on a
texture hunt outside and did more rubbings. Next class we cut the textures
apart and made "Texture Monsters" after reading "Where The Wild Things Are"
by Maurice Sendak. Kids loved it and the use of texture words following the
lesson was noticeable. We also related texture to pattern in following
lessons. Linda K. in Iowa
