I chose apples, pears and strawberries because of their identifiable shape. The children chose one of them and drew this on the black page with pencil. They had access to magazines and paste. They were to create an image of the fruit with the light landing on one side.
Several children had difficulty dealing with the light issue, but some managed to sort out the different reds or greens and move from light to dark. The shadow that the fruit would have cast on the table was hard for them to manage. It would have helped to have the real thing in front of them...next time.
