This is an introduction to collage for grades two and three. This art lesson is meant to be integrated with a lesson in literacy. It can be paired with many books that feature collage illustrations such as those by Leo Lionni. At the end of the lesson students are asked to write about their work. Students will use, pencils, crayons, scissors and glue to create an illustration of an animal in a background. The art work created is often really beautiful and makes a great classroom display.
