I found this most awesome lesson plan the other day from MaryMaking (click here ) and I immediately HAD to try it out. MaryMaking suggested using scraps of posterboard/cardboard dipped in black acrylic paint to make the "landscape". Once the paint is dry, then the students use watercolors to paint the landscape. I incorporated the warm/cool color combos into my lesson. The students had to choose whether they wanted the sky to be "warm" or "cool" color schemed...and then do the opposite for their mountain/hill/landscape. Watercolor paper probably works best, but I used white cardstock because that is what I had on hand (and it is cheaper).
