A European themed drawing and clay elementary art lesson for 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade.
I love incorporating art history in my art lessons. After a trip to Europe I was inspired to create a European based unit in my classes k-5th. This lesson was specifically designed for 4th grade, although it could be taught to 3rd, 5th, or 6th grade.
For fifth grade I decided to introduce them to Siena, Italy, the 17 contrade, or neighborhoods that make up the city, the Palio race, and other fun things in the city. The students are asked to create their own contrada, by filling in a guiding worksheet, design and color their own insignia, and build their own contrada statue out of clay.
This lesson pack includes the big idea, essential questions, goals, objectives, national standards, vocabulary, supply list, step by step instructions to implement the assignment, grading checklist, project examples, clay tips and how tos, extension ideas, and three PowerPoints.
