This unit contains lesson plans for a class period to work with centers based on the story. There are then two studio lessons to choose from. A one session watercolor resist painting and a two session turtle sculpture.
Every lesson plan has been professionally formatted and includes the NEW relevant visual arts anchors, performance standards as well as anticipatory set, step by step procedures, suggestions for modifications, guided instruction, check for understanding, closure, objectives and more.
There are sample images to print and share with your class as well as a step by step turtle drawing reproducible handout to assist students as they work at their tables or centers. There is a turtle coloring sheet that could be used to practice drawing patterns or for early finishers. Classroom tested in Kindergarten (centers & paintings) and first grade (centers & sculptures).
If you choose to do all activities with the same grade level, this could potentially take 4-5 class periods (based on 40-minute classes). Please contact seller prior to purchase with any questions!
Classroom teachers there are many connections you could make to leadership traits through the story and working together in the centers.
