I've been attempting to brainstorm ideas as much as possible as of late. My second graders have painted paper like the great Eric Carle (author and illustrator of children's books) and are now using it to create images of animals. The project is based around building images using simple shapes. I attempted to reinterpret the concept of a "man cave". A small place to chill out. All I need is light brought in, a great book and a Sheetz coffee (a large one!).
