Painting with... Car Parts!

In continuing their car project, room 3 of the Thompson building has been collecting different car parts that have been donated to their classroom. Today, we took some of the parts and used them for “print-painting”, which allows some of the textures and patterns of the equipment to be transferred to canvas. The children enjoyed drawing with bolts, rolling a tire across the surface, and using a sort of exhaust pipe to make circles and other patterns. As investigations such as these continue, we hope to spark conversations about all of the different parts of a car and develop recognition of what the children are observing!
