Teach your students about Koinobori - the Japanese Carp Kites with this fun and easy lesson. Could take two to three sessions depending on your personal requirements and the length of each class. I start with the book "Pattern Fish" but you could easily substitute another favorite. The culminating activity is a haiku writing to tie into language arts. A fun spring lesson. Take them outside to watch them blow in the wind.
The professionally formatted unit plan includes 2 lesson plans with objectives, the NEW 2014 National Visual Arts Standards, Resources, ANticipatory set, Modeling, Check for Understanding, Input and procedures. You'll also get the Haiku Helper worksheet and a sample for inspiration.
