Fifth graders tried their hand at drawing bubbles.  Students attempted to draw from imagination but the bubbles didn’t quite capture the real thing. Next, we really examined the properties of a bubble by studying images of them and even looking at real bubbles as they floated around the art room.  We noticed all bubbles have the following qualities:

1.       They have a mix of colors inside them

2.       They are translucent

3.       They have a bright white reflection from the light

4.       The color inside flows with the contour (outline) of the bubble

Students then used their observations to draw a more realistic bubble!
