PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Compare and contrast are the focus of this “looking at art” activity that integrates Art with Language Arts and addresses visual literacy skills. Students identify and discuss similarities and differences in two works of art with the same content but with different styles.

** This lesson is included in the Learn Language Arts Strategies With Art - BUNDLE series.**

Comparing the style and content of two art works helps students learn to focus on the visual aspect of making comparisons. They look for commonalities and differences of style, technique, and content elements. This activity is based completely on what students observe, absent of making generalizations or inferences.

This lesson includes

- suggested art works especially suited to comparing and contrasting
- summary of the general procedure
- list of materials needed and preparation required
- step-by-step directions for looking at art
- suggested questions for art observation
- suggestions for extending the lesson with art and reading
- list of related resources to enhance the lesson
and
- a student response worksheet that can be used for various art comparisons

This comprehensive lesson is designed to address language arts skills along with art appreciation and art analysis. Extensions can expand the lesson into art technique and art history.


********** PLEASE NOTE ***********

This lesson is one in a series in which students are engaged in art observation activities that focus on specific skills including compare and contrast, fact and opinion, main idea and details, making generalizations, making inferences, vocabulary learning strategies, and more.
