Students in the 1st grade learned all about texture. They learned that texture refers to how something feels or how something looks like it feels. First students explored texture through creating texture rubbings of different surfaces and objects around the classroom. They then learned to identify various types of texture such as soft, rough, smooth, furry, wet, etc. When they showed a great knowledge of texture, they were introduced to impressions. An impression is something (such as a design or a footprint) made by pressing or stamping a surface. Using found materials, students explored making impressions in clay. They found it very interesting the textures created by leaving impressions in the clay.
