Day and Night Craft

This week we have been talking about the differences between day and night and this was a fun simple craft that we did using paper plates.
First I had my students start coloring the center of the plate yellow to represent daytime and than they colored the outer edge of the plate with a dark blue or black to represent the night sky. I than drew a swirl line on the plate for them as a guideline to cut on to make our plates into a mobile that can be hung with a ribbon. Now the students were ready to glue their clouds (aka: cotton balls) on to the daylight area and they stuck golden stars in the night sky area.
They turned out really cute and my students loved how they hung in a "twirley" fashion!!!
