In this lesson for grade 4, after students study the American colonists, they work in groups to create articles and artwork that depict colonial life--the art and articles are put together in newspaper form and copied for distribution to the class, other classes, and parents. The lesson should take 4-5 days for classroom implementation. It provides detailed information for the teacher and an overview; cites relevant National Standards for Arts Education; lists instructional objectives and strategies; offers a step-by-step instructional plan; and suggests assessment and extension activities.
