3D Landscapes

Understanding space – foreground, middle ground, background as well as overlapping can be quite challenging for elementary kids. This assignment aimed at demystifying the concepts through a fun project.

The students began by making an accordion fold from a strip of paper. They opened it out and cut a downward sloping line through it. This was then painted on both sides. This stage looked something like this.

They started adding landscape elements keeping in mind the relative sizes and placements. They could draw these on a separate paper and paste them in place.

When completed, they could see the overlapping and the different grounds together. They were thrilled to see their completed works.

  1. Hi, I love this lesson and am thinking of doing a version of it with my 4/5th graders since we have been working on types of landscapes. I wanted to see if you had a copy of your lesson or a link to general directions and paper size to use? If so it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
