- Each student will be required to paint two pumpkins: one like a world globe as pictured below and one for the country they choose for the project fair.
- Both pumpkins must be washed thoroughly in bleach water and allowed to air dry. They are to be brought to class by Monday, September 25th, where they then can be sealed with Mod Podge spray provided by Mrs. Smith. Once the pumpkins are washed and sealed then the painting may begin.
- Students are to use the following steps to paint the pumpkin provided for them:
- STEP 1: Paint the entire surface of the pumpkin blue to represent water.
- STEP 2: Use pushpins to position and trace the outline of each continent onto the pumpkins. Use an actual globe as a models and be careful to place the continents in the correct hemisphere.
- STEP 3: Paint and label each continent a different color. Label the major bodies of water and use white paint to represent the North and South Poles
*Beginning Monday, September 25th, pumpkins will be left in the classroom so that once homework is completed then each student may work on their project. Projects may be stored in Mrs. Smith’s classroom and taken to Study Hall to be worked on once all other homework is completed per the discretion of the Study Hall teacher.
