In this easy-to-follow, detailed lesson we learn about the lifecycle and habitat surrounding apple while creating cute little bitten apples using chalk pastel. These adorable illustrations are a joy for students to draw as well as for us to admire, each with their own personality.
This lesson is part of our Art & Literature curriculum series that combines art with literature. During each lesson, students listen to a short story, poem, or excerpt and then create artwork inspired by that story. Every lesson is complete with an overview on the a topic highlighted in the book we are exploring, step-by-step art lesson instructions with accompanying photos, and critical thinking questions to guide your students in learning beyond the art lesson itself. This lesson can also be taught on its own without the literature element if desired.
