What educators are saying

Fantastic. I connected all the projects to Social Studies ( Canadian curriculum) and learning about the the different countries and cultures around the world.
This is such an engaging resource. I used it at home with my kids and was able to teach multiple ages together.

    Here are the details:

    • All 18 of our Unique Art Lessons feature a teacher script, step-by-step photos, templates and literacy integration activities.

    • 6 Different Countries/Continents and Cultures - India, Mexico, Australia, Africa, China and Canada each have THREE are lessons/art projects included for a thorough exploration of different aspects of each unique culture.

    • Teacher Scripts - You don't have to have any background knowledge or in-depth knowledge of the art curriculum to implement this program. The teacher scripts are written in straightforward language so you can turn to page one and start the discussion! There are guiding questions embedded to facilitate a meaningful discussion before introducing the art project.

    • Step By Step Photos - Every lesson features a visual supply list using very basic and inexpensive supplies. You can make AMAZING art with a very low budget! Each lesson has step-by-step photos and descriptions to walk you through the process. You can even show this page to your students as they work so they can use it as reference!

    • Literacy Extensions - Every country has a collection of literacy projects for early finishers, writing centers or extension projects. There are coloring pages, reflection writing pages, word searches, creative writing prompts, sequencing writing templates, and a lot more!

    You do not need to use any particular websites to complete this collection. I would suggest doing a simple google search for images relating to the art studied, and I have provided suggestions for search terms. Project these images for the class to discuss during the read-aloud introductory discussion for great results!

    All projects can be kept in a portfolio or scrapbook, which results in a great educational portfolio and keepsake! I have included a cute cover for scrapbooks in both black and white and color -see them in the preview!
