Supplement to Art for Elementary Schools.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
The document provides art activities for the classroom teacher who is not an art specialist. It contains activities which supplement experiences provided by the art teacher as well as activities designed to measure the achievement level of students in concept skills related to art and the principles of design. The supplement is divided into three sections: K-2, 3-4, and 5-6. Within the sections, activities are organized according to early childhood, language arts, mathematics, music, science, social studies, and outdoor education. Activities for grades K-2 include shadow puppets, finger painting, drawing from auditory memory, and making yarn flowers. In grades 3-4, students learn about primary and secondary colors, mix paint to obtain different values, create paper mache characters, and make a flipbook. Activities for grades 5-6 include designing a colonial quilt, making skeletal leaf rubbings and skeletal sculpture, drawing portraits, producing etchings, creating a Japanese rock garden, examining social commentary in painting, drawing caricatures, creating designs associated with sound, and examining the human figure in art history. An extensive glossary, a classification of art terms, and a bibliography of books and films are included. (KC)
