** Can be used every year around Halloween!!
I am going to be introducing my 2nd graders to value, and we will use the techniques from this activity to help us towards our next project. I introduce my students to value in terms of how much pressure they apply when using their pencil, crayon, etc. We will work towards adding white and black later in the year.
I have also added an additional slide to show students an example of a value scale and how much pressure should be added to each section. The scale was made to correspond to the sky behind the haunted house, so the students will know which areas need to be lighter/darker.
EXTENSION ACTIVITY INCLUDED FOR EARLY FINISHERS OR AS A DAY #2 ACTIVITY!!!
I have created an activity that involves the students designing their own haunted house. They may color when they are done designing, or not (I let them choose). When they are finished, there are 4 questions on the back they need to answer about their haunted house. You may edit these to fit your needs.
