PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introduce radial symmetry with this poetry-integrated art lesson. Students focus on shape and line as elements of art as they create a collage using repeated geometric shapes and other shapes to create a sunflake design.

This a simple lesson can be used as a stand-alone collage activity, or it can be combined with a lesson on snowflakes and extended with poetry writing and making comparisons.

This art lesson includes the following:

- list of art concepts and skills addressed
- list of materials needed
- targeted art and related vocabulary
- suggestion for related read aloud
- suggestions for working with poetry
- detailed steps for introducing the lesson
- directions for art-making
- ideas for extending or varying the lesson
- ideas for looking at and discussing student art
- suggestions for writing extensions
- photographs of student art work for reference

Also included with this lesson is Sunflakes and Snowflakes, a graphic organizer worksheet for comparing snowflakes to sunflakes.

This comprehensive art lesson is designed to teach art appreciation, artist behavior, and art analysis.

Because I teach in California, this lesson also includes a list of the California Visual Arts Standards addressed for suggested grade levels. Please note that listed grade levels are suggestions only; any of these lessons can be simplified or made more complex to work for any elementary grade.


********** PLEASE NOTE *********

Sunflakes is bundled
with two other lessons in Art With Symmetry. A short description of the lesson is also included in GeomARTry.

I am a retired elementary classroom teacher, a former art teacher, an artist and a writer. I have worked with all elementary grades, and with special groups including ELL, GATE, and At-Risk students. Creating Art With Kids and Share2Learn lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.

Visit my blog, Creating Art With Kids, for detailed descriptions and helpful tips about the teaching process for many of my art lessons.
