My art students looove this lesson! They have so much fun learning how to cut, paste, and trace with this great introduction to art skills lesson! They also get to create patterns on their balloons, and add 'realistic-looking' details by adding cotton balls and mini photos of themselves! Parents love these! This lesson, like my others, includes handouts to place on the tables so that the students have a point of reference for understanding key concepts!
Along with every lesson, on the last page, I include a sheet of handouts that describe the lesson along with the main concepts that were taught to the students. This sheet can be cut into strips, one for each student, and stapled onto their projects to be sent home for parents reading! (click thumbnail to preview handout slips)
