Apple Art & Giveaway Reminder

Long, long ago in a world when Pinterest didn't exist, I stumbled across a teacher's website.  It was filled with bright, colorful photographs of her classroom.  On the cabinets I saw an art project hanging.  I was inspired to create my own version of the project and have been using it for years ever since. 

The students start with an apple template which has been printed onto red cardstock paper.  The students lightly shade one side of the apple. (Later, during the gluing phase, students know they can only put glue on the side with pencil marks).

Then students use 4-6 lines to create a design across the apple (straight, zig-zag, and wavy work best). Students cut the apple into pieces. 

Students will put their puzzle back together with the shaded side up. With help, students will flip their apple over and create space between each piece of the apple.

Students then glue down the pieces onto white cardstock. Students will freehand cut a leaf from green paper and a stem from brown paper. They will make one line design through each and glue down to finish their apples. Here are some examples of the finished product:

Notice the one on the left - the student put seeds on the inside :)
