Develop descriptive and creative writing by asking your students to look at the detailed work of Henri Rousseau. This resource includes a lesson plan, and within a presentation an introduction to Rousseau's work. 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 Rousseau artworks are also within the PowerPoint ready to print off.
A great resource to get your students creatively writing.
To make it clear, this is not a presentation on Rousseau, I'm just using a PowerPoint to hold the activities. The PowerPoint is 6 slides long.
Slide 1: Front Page
Slide 2: Introduction to Rousseau with facts.
Slide 3: A Rousseau artwork to use with the example worksheet to demonstrate what you would like students to do.
Slides 4 - 7 Artworks to print off, which your students will use to complete the worksheet.
