Product Description

This unit is a great option for students to gain awareness of social issues affecting them and their locales. The murals unit plan includes activities around visual thinking strategies, and student-driven, project-based learning.

Students view and discuss symbolism and social issues the world's longest mural--The Great Wall of Los Angeles. Each decade is represented with a different mural connecting California's history from the stone age to today. Using their knowledge of political art and symbolism, the unit ends in a culminating project where students come up with their own idea of how to represent this decade's most important social issues. Students develop an artist statement to coincide with their painting.

  • Community engagement tip---Blow away parents, students, and administrators by hosting an art show! Print the artist statements and hang them next to the student's paintings for an end-of-the-unit show, or open house.
