Performance Objectives:

Cognitive: Given the three different paintings, students will be able to identify different lines, colors, and shapes 

Affective:  Students will encourage and respect each other in both a group setting as well as in individual activities, including positive feedback.

Psychomotor: Forming a line, students will demonstrate fundamental movements that best fit the type of line that is called out.


In K2 physical education, children are just learning and becoming aware of their body’s movements and abilities. Many primary Phys. Ed programs regularly include movement and dance as a regular part of their curriculum. This activity integrates Modern Art and Physical Education by having students act out the movements and emotions depicted within the paintings: The Starry Night (Vincent Van Gogh), The Scream (Edvard Munch), and Number 1/Lavender Mist (Jackson Pollock. Students will be asked to “become” the shapes, colors, or the paintbrush and explore the possibilities within the selected canvases.
