3rd Grade Dimension

  • The 3rd-grade students engaged in a painting project to learn about foreground, middle ground, and background. They learned that objects in the foreground are larger and have more detail, objects in the middle ground and “medium” sized and have a “medium” amount of detail, and objects in the background are smaller with the least amount of detail. They first demonstrated their knowledge by painting poppies in the appropriate size and location and then added some paper pop-out poppies in the appropriate size and location to give their paintings some dimension.
