Product Description
Peggy L. Bennett, SC
This is a lesson about artist, Jacob Lawrence, in which the students become art detectives in order to find a mystery boot that seems connected to nothing in particular. The students then investigate further to figure out who the boot belongs to. The lesson includes having the students create a tableau to reenact the painting. Would work for grades 1,2,3,4,and 5.
I teach at an arts infused magnet school and develop arts infused/integrated lessons that can be done by classroom teachers or the visual art teacher or by both teachers together.
