PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Case of the Vanishing Point is a powerpoint lesson set up as a webquest with hyperlinks to navigate the slides as well as links to external sites on the internet. Students will be lead through an Introduction and given a four part mission.
First they must learn the terms of one-point perspective (ie vanishing point, converging lines, etc)
Secondly, they examine evidence of perspective from famous paintings and are asked questions requiring them to interact with the artwork to answer.
Thirdly, they will search for clues of perspective from live webcams of Chicago (all links can by modified to make links to your local city webcams).
Finally, students will recreate perspective by drawing a city scene with my step-by-step tutorial.
The webquest also includes a rubric for assessment and a link to a game to reinforce perspective for the early finishers.
I would recommend putting this powerpoint out on your website or school server for students to download in the computer lab and work at their own pace or with a partner. This would also make a great sub plan since the webquest teaches the lesson for you! Or, just use the step-by-step tutorial to start everyone off on a great city scene drawing in one-point perspective.
Tricia :) Don't forget to rate me.

This was a great activity for my students. They had a lot of fun. Some of the links didn't work properly and as I am not an 'Art' person, found it hard to replace or fix. Great idea and was great for me to use!! Thanks so much!!
