This mini unit is designed for 9-12 grade level, although it could be introduced as early as 7th grade. Everything you need to teach students about the visual language of art through the Elements and Principles of design is here. The 53 page unit consists of four sections. Pages 0-7 are a student handout to be filled in with written and visual samples of the Elements and Principles of design. The next section of eight pages is a key to the student handout. The section following the key is a Elements and Principles Test. The last 30 page section provided is an overhead presentation that will be used to introduce each Element and Principle, both in written definition and visual sample form, by which students can fill out their handout.
