I LOVE integrating art with other standards. This Fourth and Fifth Grade unit was created to encompass standards from science and art. These lessons could be used for older students as well by adjusting the standards to meet the level.
As you go through the presentation, you will notice there are many opportunities to add in additional art lessons (standards) not listed in my presentation. Although these lessons are complete for instruction, I would suggest using these slides as your guide through the unit and adding your own creative teaching methods to create the ultimate learning experience for your students.

The fourth grade lessons are group projects only because in subsequent weeks I started clay with them. The fifth grade lessons include both group projects and individual pieces. Feel free to do the individual pieces with your fourth graders as well. The timing just didn't work out for me. :-)
As always, Marzano's DQ's have been included in the presentation, but if you don't need those feel free to take them out. :-)
My teaching schedule allows me to see each class once a week. The teaching duration reflects this schedule. It took us about 6 weeks to cover these lessons. Coordinating lessons for each elementary grade level are also available.
Thanks for stopping by my store. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Creativity NOT Conformity!
