Crazy Hat Day would be a great time to teach this. It is a fun lesson anytime though.
This lesson plan requires little to no prep. It is a lesson that my students always enjoy when I sub in art. (I am a retired art teacher who now subs for my friends.) Before I go into the lesson I show some funny, short videos about hats from YouTube. You certainly don't need to do that, but your kiddos might enjoy it.
I wrote it as a sub lesson but it would be fun to teach on "Crazy Hat Day" too.
This is a PowerPoint that may be used in two ways. It may be printed out and shown page by page to the students or shown as a projected PowerPoint. It was written as a sub plan for an art class, but could certainly be used by an art teacher or classroom teacher.
The supplies needed are simple. The student will need paper, pencil, crayons or markers.
This lesson is written so that the teacher may teach completely by following the prompts in the slides. It is easy enough to be used by anyone, but still interesting enough to engage an upper elementary age student.
