This is a lesson plan that focuses on the artist Norman Rockwell. It includes background information on the artist, discussion questions, and a guided lesson that prompts students to apply their knowledge on lines, colors, and shapes while they create their own painting. It also includes a lesson closure using think-pair-share and informal project presentations. Here are the objectives I used:
The students will be able to...
1. give examples of how paintings can tell a story.
2. create a story painting using the provided materials.
3. name the two types of things Norman Rockwell based his paintings on.
4. share and explain their story paintings with the class
