IMG_0856 IMG_0857 IMG_0858 Grade 3 have made some fantastic insects using dyes, rock salt and paint.

Firstly they drew 3 body parts for their insect design.

Next they painted the body and then very carefully painted dye around the edge. Rock salt was placed on top of the dye which draws the moisture up and makes wonderful patterns in the dye.

OnceĀ it was all dry the students made marks to decorate their insects.

Check them out in the school passage. They make a colourful display.

Great work grade 3.
