Getting Off on the Right Foot in Elementary Art.
Designed as a guide to planning art lessons, the booklet offers over 40 suggestions and sample lesson plans for students in grades K-6. Although most of the lessons could be taught at any time of year, they are arranged month-by-month for convenience. Included in each monthly program are lesson plans for both intermediate and primary students, most of which are adaptable to other age levels. The unit includes experiences in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, crafts, design, art history, and art as a career. Student activities include making fluorescent insect designs, Japanese banners, weed drawings, African-type masks, cubistic cats, scary creatures, sand painting, bark cuttings, stained glass windows, macrame snowflakes, puppets, paper sculpture, quilt blocks, slides, and May baskets. An extensive bibliography lists over 35 books, articles, and teacher resources. This document is part of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (LH)
