This is a great activity for teaching about Pop Art and Andy Warhol while combining the fun of Fall and specifically, Halloween! It will work well for any group from Kinders through high school.
Instead of Warhol's traditional "Tomato" soup, the flavor area is blank and students can think creatively on the theme of Fall and Halloween to come up with whatever "flavor" they choose. I recommend writing a list as they come up with their ideas, so you don't get the same flavors repeatedly. Some of my favorites have been Witch's Brew, Ghoulish, and Candy Corn.
The download comes with 10 different pages. They differentiate by the symbol that replaced the circular seal on the center of the can. Nine of the pages have Halloween/Fall symbols and the 10th is blank for your super creative kiddos that want to dream up their own. (This one could be used for anytime of the year that you want to teach about Warhol and Pop Art without being season specific!)
Coloring with markers is easy for any age, but you could make it more complex for advanced students by using colored pencils and emphasizing value changes based on a specific light source.
Similarly, the lettering can be done simply, but I usually review the concept of the contour of the curved can and how that affects the look of the words. I also have the students draw vertical lines lightly in pencil to plan for the adequate spacing of the number of letters they have in their "flavor."
The finished soup cans are about 5" x 7" inches and make an awesome display when cut out and mounted on colored paper and hung together!
