Can it with the lantern idea will you?!
I usually drink some Peace Tea for lunch and decided to save the cans and turn them into Lanterns. This is a very very easy lesson to do with students, as long as you don't mind drinking tea, and is so much fun to do. All you really need to do is take a push pin and use it to poke holes in the side of the aluminum cans. We discussed pointillism and the use of dots, and also talked about positive and negative space. I also told students to have their parents cut a little window near the bottom for tea lights to go eventually. We used a flash light first to illuminate the inside and it was awesome. here are some students working and my example with an oceanic theme for the final part. Enjoy.
