Have your primary students explore and use images from their imagination to create a postcard.
-Template for Creating Postcards (photocopy 2 sheets to double-sided)
1) Photocopy the front side and the back side so they are double sided on a sheet. Cut in half, there will be two per sheet. Trim them down so they look like a postcard.
2) Ask you students, what is an imagination? Take a variety of responses.
3) Ask them to close their eyes to see what is in their imagination. When they open them they can share their responses.
4) Ask the students to draw their imagination on the front side. I did this with kindergartens and had a huge variety of styles, qualities and images. A couple who were still 4 just scribbled and I let it because it is their way of expressing. Others were very detailed with their work. Be flexible and let them show you what they see.
5) On the back they can write a sentence about their image. On the from line they can write their name. In the address line, I simple put my school’s name.
To extend or for a display, you can print off blank cards or use extras to write in questions like “What is Creativity?” or “What does an imagination look like?” to get not only other students thinking, but teachers as well. I didn’t have an extra display board so I decorated the door to our art room instead. Whatever works right?
In my picture you can see I have them in envelopes.... I found a box of recycled envelopes in our art room and I created this project around them. Be creative, I am sure you will think of your own way to display. Hang them?
