Develop descriptive and creative writing by asking your students to look at the detailed work of Pieter Bruegel.
This resource includes a lesson plan, and within a presentation a fun starter activity which looks at Bruegels 'Netherlandish Proverbs'. The presentation then gives an example of how to fill in the worksheet.
The worksheet is a metacognition task which asks students to look at the artwork, write what they can see and then what they are 'thinking', 'wondering' or 'feeling'.
A selection of three Bruegel artworks are also within the PowerPoint ready to print of.
A great resource to get your students writing descriptively.
To make it clear, this is not a presentation on Bruegel, I'm just using a PowerPoint to hold the activities. The PowerPoint is 6 slides long.
Slide 1: Starter Activity including some info on Bruegel.
Slide 2: A slide with animation that looks in detail at 'Netherlandish Proverbs'
Slide 3: A Bruegel artwork to use with the example worksheet to demonstrate what you would like students to do.
Slides 4 - 6 Artworks to print off.
