This PBL (Project Based Learning) unit covers Visual Art standards and ELA common core writing standards. It is a unit on fairy tales that uses art projects along the way to increase story structure and descriptive details. It uses 2nd grade common core standards but can easily be translated to any grade level narrative writing unit. It is primarily meant for deepening their descriptive language as a writer and as an artist. This unit also includes Learning Targets and lessons taken from Lucy Calkins curriculum. It uses pair-shares, small and large group learning and has presentations, voice and choice, a driving questions and Need To Knows built into it.Like any PBL teaching, it is important to first have strong classroom management in place before starting and know that this is a place where students do the learning more than you do the teaching. It is entertaining and engaging the entire way through, so have fun with it.
