Art Image Preschool: Introducing 3-to-5-Year-Old Children to Art and Artists. [Packet] 4: Animals in the Wild. Teacher's Guide.
This teacher's guide accompanies a packet of five art reproductions based on animals as a theme. The guide offers suggestions for engaging children's attention and curiosity about art and artists, and encourages exploration of the issues these works present through art activities, discussions, learning centers, field trips, and other experiences within and beyond the classroom. The activities emphasize connections between young children's concerns and those which artists in various times and places have explored in their works. Artists presented and art works examined in this guide are: (1) Albert Dumouchel, "L'Horrible Chat des Neiges (The Horrible Snow Cat)"; (2) Eugene Delacroix, "Jeune Tigre Jouant avec sa Mere (Young Tiger Playing with His Mother)"; (3) Jean-Leon Gerome,"Tiger and Cubs"; (4) Mori Sosen, "Japanese Macaques (Detail #2)"; and (5) Henri Rousseau, "Exotic Landscape." After introductory sections which provide background information regarding the instructional methodology, and suggestions for discussions and activities, the guide includes objective, concepts, materials, preparation, discussion questions, a focus activity and extension activities, and resources for presenting each of the five art reproductions. The guide concludes with biographical notes on each of the artists represented in this guide, and an annotated list of art reproductions in the Art Image series. (MM)
