Overlapping Pumpkins

Kindergarten students learned how to make objects in drawings overlap to create depth. I drew two pumpkins and cut them out so they could be moved to show students the visual difference between drawings of objects that are side to side and overlapping. Overlapping is kind of a difficult concept for Kindergarten students! The drawings turned out really good and it was fun to see the students get excited when it clicked. Some drew 4 or 5 overlapping pumpkins! I showed them how I blended crayon colors on my example but I let them use any colors they wanted. Who says pumpkins have to be orange?
