Grade Levels: K-3

These classroom activities are designed to complement the Collage topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Have students create a scrapbook. Encourage them to select a theme for a page in their scrapbook and create a collage that explores that theme. For example, they may want to explore the theme of friendship or create a scrapbook collage that commemorates an event at school or at home. Have students incorporate different elements into their collage and pay attention to what materials or items they use. What does each item symbolize? What feeling or idea does it invoke?

Collage Artists
Have children create a collage on a specific theme, such as the environment or the city. Then have them create their works. Remind them to pay special attention to symbols and choose their materials carefully to explore the theme. Have students share their works with the class and describe their collages. How are the collages alike and different? Help students understand how collages can look or feel different but still explore the same theme.
