Texture Rubbings—2nd Grade

Posted on

The 2nd graders are learning about texture!  After naming all of the different kinds that we could think of, I sent the class off in pairs of two to find different textures around the classroom.  Each pair filled a page with 9 different crayon rubbings, made by placing the paper over a textured surface and then rubbing the crayon over the top (see below).

This was a big hit with all of the students—some grew creative and rubbed the soles of their shoes to achieve a unique texture.  Others tried rubbing a stripped texture one way and then switching the paper to get a criss-cross pattern!

I can’t wait to show them how we are going to use these textures in another project soon!
