Not only is this a tasty lesson it is a berry-fantastic one. This unit is a four day lesson geared for seventh grade students. There are three main activities that are targeted in the art process: planning, creating, and reflecting. Students observe strawberry plants/flowers/fruit. They then sketch out a plan for creating a piece of artwork with the idea of a strawberry. Students then reflect on the process of the use of materials and how they took care of the tools and supplies.

Caution before purchasing this amazing lesson consider if your students or other staff members are allergic to strawberries. The lesson can still be used with artificial plants and pictures; however, it is not as tasty.
