This project came from the blog Drip Drip Splatter Splash. I wanted to do this in September for International Dot Day but we were busy back then. I thought this would be a fun one day project with next week being the last week of school. I read the students the book (even the 6th graders are quiet with awe), The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds, and then we paint our own dots! I provided circle stencils for students to trace the dot and they painted with tempera cakes. Too much fun!
