Integrating the Curriculum: Print, Scatter and Splatter
Lambert, Phyllis Gilchrist
Arts & Activities, v152 n3 p18 Nov 2012
Autumn is a colorful season--with the brilliant yellows, oranges and reds against the evergreen trees. It makes sense to incorporate the beauty of season into art projects, and it provides an opportunity to integrate natural science into the lesson as well. Literacy was also incorporated into the lesson, as the author introduced this printing lesson with a story about leaves changing colors. Of course, the author emphasized title, author and illustrator of the book, as well as had students tell her about the book after the reading. Leaf printing involves many learning concepts--leaf shapes, tree varieties, leaf structure, vocabulary, leaf cycles, why they change color and so on. The kids loved this project and were actively involved every minute.
