Patterned Bead Snakes
A while ago the kids made Paper Pattern Snakes and they were a big hit.

My student teacher is working on Chameleon Sculptures with the second grade, and I'm just as nuts for them this year as last! It's great for working those tactile skills, forming a sculpture that the kids TOTALLY DIG, and studying a little science.

This is a popular project that I've seen on several blogs: Artolazzi, smART Class, and Art with Ms. Gram are a few. Taking a cue from…
