This activity was designed for use on ClassDojo or any digital learning platform with markup tools. I created this project as a celebration of SPRING to coincide with Aurora Downtown's Egg Hunt on the Island event. I based the lesson on a book called, P. Zonka Lays an Egg by Julie Paschkis. In the story, the artistic hen, P. Zonka, is too busy making CAREFUL OBSERVATIONS of the beauty in her world to lay eggs like the other hens, despite their criticism of P. Zonka. When she finally tries, her eggs are ORIGINAL and CREATIVE, and filled with LINE, COLOR, and PATTERN. She emphasizes QUALITY over QUANTITY. P. Zonka models the ARTISTIC BEHAVIORS that our K-5 artists practice each week; We understand that artists are DIVERSE, OBSERVANT, ON TASK, PERSEVERANT, POSITIVE, RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, SAFE, and SKILLED. The artists also learned about the batik wax-resist process and the history of Pysanky Ukrainian eggs inscribed with symbolic folk designs.
The artists LOVED this activity and I am extremely happy with their finished products!
