5th Grade Chalk Planets - Teach Junkie - Teach shading techniques with a planets space art project. Here is a chalk art project for fifth grade that focuses on the basics of art like shading a sphere. Students pick a planet to illustrate and use chalk to create the colors and shading. With a stunning a bold piece of art like this, what’s not to love?

They They created the planets on white paper and pastel chalk (learned about how to blend and which colors are best to blend together). I took their picture looking up while they were working. Then They had a template to trace for the helmet. By: Lisa VandenBush
