This art sub plan requires little to no prep. It was designed to be taught by a substitute teacher, art teacher, or classroom teacher in the primary grades. It is fully formed so that all a teacher needs to do is to read the information on each slide as they show the pictures. Questions are included to help lead the students through a discussion.
The lesson introduces the students to Asian dragon costumes as they might be seen in parades and festivals. Along with a little background information about the mythical dragons, students observe decorative details used in these festive costumes.
One reviewer said, "I think this is a colorful and detailed resource that I can use or have for a sub to use. I have a book of poems called The Dragons are Singing Tonight by Jack Prelutsky that will be an additional resource to integrate with this lesson."
Using the most basic art room supplies, paper, pencil and crayons, students will create their own imaginative dragon costume.
This lesson may be taught as a PowerPoint projection or printed out and each page shown, one-by-one.
This would be perfect as an emergency sub lesson or as a lesson to be taught by a teacher at any time.
