This is an editable (16 pages) powerpoint lesson plan bundle (includes presentation of lesson as well as worksheets that can be used as do now / bell work activities, extra credit, or just be a resource for your classroom!
This year, I have had a challenging 5th grade group of students that have needed a lot of support and engagement in lessons. This lesson combines the art of zentangle (meditative doodling), watercolor paint, and checking out some cool insects to make watercolor paintings! Also in my store is the availability to buy an art/sketching packet that goes along with this lesson and is great for classroom management (be sure to check it out!).
The best part of this product is that it is editable to work for your classroom. You can see the management techniques "daily goals" that I use in my slides, but feel free to make it work for your classroom! The results of this project are beautiful. In one of the slides, I have included Youtube links to videos that can be watched to show your students AWESOME time lapse videos of artists creating zentangles - really fun!!
