Patriotic Star Collage with Art Elements:
I created this lesson as an all school lesson in order to create a school wide collaborative art project to add to our permanent art collection simultaneously with individual collage projects.
The lesson helps the educator to include the art elements such as: Line, Shape, Variety, Overlapping, Shading, and cutting skills. This can be used for 3 year old students up to high school, the pre-k students will not be able to cut the stars but can shade designs using variety.
This can be used for Holidays such as Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Presidents Day etc...
This lesson helps to pace the students. I used this lesson on portfolio day to keep large classes busy while allowing meticulous students to finalize unfinished work from previous classes. Early finishers can create more stars and the more meticulous students will not feel rushed. This can also be used as an art center.
