*Updated 10/3/2015 -- Now includes updated instructions, student example, and guiding questions for you to help your students arrive at the right ideas. :)
Lesson plan for students to create a small booklet in which they illustrate each of the principles of design. The booklet can be kept as a reminder of these principles for use in future projects. I do this mini-project early in the school year so that my students can keep these principles in mind as they work on future projects.
Takes 3x 45-50 minute class periods.
Includes TEKS (Texas state standards), ideas for adapting/modifying the lesson in several ways, daily procedures, and more!
Looking for a way to introduce students to the principles of design before they get to work? Check out this slide presentation!
I also sell scavenger hunt activities for both the elements and principles
which includes a free quiz!
