How To Prep:

-Either project the step-by-step pages from the PDF for your students to follow, or use it as a guideline for yourself so you can demonstrate the art project to your students.

-Look over the lesson plan for the materials needed for your art project. Gather these in advance! Then there will be no panic during the lesson.

-Photocopy any necessary student handouts such as step-by-steps or rubrics. These will be needed during your art lesson and are very helpful for students.

How to Use:

-Look over the lesson plan to see what to do and what materials are needed.

-Look over the visual and text step-by-steps to see how to make the piece and possibly you may want to make a sample yourself so you have no problems helping your students later.

-Print off the included Poster Sample for your students in color to show them what they’re making prior to the lesson (it’s your hook!)

-Show the PDF over your digital projector, under a document camera (best if you have it printed in color) or use as information for yourself as you demonstrate the art lesson to your class.

-All steps include both a visual and text description to make teaching this or showing this directly to your students and easy process and will eliminate any confusion!
