“Animal Art Around the World” offers teachers a year of art projects on students’ ever-favorite subject — animals. Using a variety media, this unit will guide teachers step-by-step in helping students create art based on the historical and cultural significance of animals around the world. These ten art projects are backed up by 10 slide shows which offer students plenty of illustrations and explanations of why a particular animal was revered in a country’s culture. Your students’ awareness of geography, history, culture and art will be expanded by these ten art projects, which include:
• Kangaroos of Aboriginal Australia
• Elephants of India
• North American Animals of Anasazi Rock Art
• Spirit Animals of the Senofu Tribe in Africa
• Gyotaku Fish of
• Horses of Ancient Greece
• Amate Birds of Mexico
• Wooden Snow Snakes of Native American Indians
• Reindeer of the Sami tribe of Nordic countries
• Lions of Ancient Egypt
The slide shows contain 95 slides with nearly 300 illustrations and 220 details about the history, culture, and art of animals.
In addition there are some 70 pages of instructions, templates, or examples for the art projects. Also included is a world map that shows the spread of the ten art projects to help you or your students choose the one they would like to work on next.
All documents are offered as PDFs or Jpegs, while the slide shows are available in both Apple Keynote and Microsoft PowerPoint.
