Wattie Works - ‘Texture Hills’. These lessons teach students about texture and develops language around that. It also introduces how we can change the texture of items through manipulation.
This art activity that takes roughly a week to complete, including a self and peer assessment. It starts with a homework task, students do some hands on research and gathering. Followed by a couple of in class activities talking about and describing textures. They can also explore how we can change texture of items. Then they start the art work, which you will need a few lessons to complete, and persistence from the students. But the end result is worth it. Finally there is a self and peer assessment section for students to fill out to round the sessions off.
There are suggestions of further extension activity you could go off and explore if you wanted to extend this topic.
This can be used from Grade 4 - 6. Grades 6+ ca use it also, you will just have to add to the self assessment to make it more suitable.
