Created using old unusable CDs being given away at a yard sale.
I taught this lesson during my elementary student teaching placement and my students were so engaged and excited about this project! They even connected my lesson to what they were learning in their science class, the solar system. Hearing them make connections while they were creating their artwork was a truly great experience.
Students will discover how to make monotype prints using old or unusable CD’s. Students will explore how to create planet prints using different patterns and colors. Once students create their planets they will be able to create a galaxy, creating stars, spaceships, astronauts or adding rings to their planets.
