My previous 4th grade printmaking lesson was decent, but not outstanding. It was too similar from an art-making perspective to the Wild Things I do with my 2nd graders. This year, I really wanted to push the medium a little more by printing with multiple colors. I ended up deciding to push it to three colors and add in a little vocab by also bringing in the use of complimentary colors.

|On the final day of printing, cut out a small detail that makes sense to print in a |
third color. Then, you guessed it, print this piece right on top of the original prints.
