While the students were learning all their songs and actions to the Barn Yard MOOsical in the music room, they painted the backdrop for their show in the art room!
For each musical I draw out the backdrop on large paper (33'x8'). I cut or fold the backdrop into four sections - one section for each day of the specials cycle. Every student that wants to paint part of the backdrop has the chance to paint.
The Barn Yard MOOsical was a blast to paint with the K and 1st grade students. They painted the whole thing - all I did was outline it in the end.
