Hello and Thanks for stopping by!
I use this art unit in sequence with a year long theme for my second grade art classes: Family (creating family trees)
The overall objective of this art unit is for students to create an individualized artwork, representing their family by independently developing their art-making sequence using various art-making materials and exploring the idea of ‘family’ by engaging their families in activities and discussions.
The power point offers activities for the teacher to engage their students in small group and whole group discussions using visual thinking strategies, encouraging collaboration and affording young students the space to independently create their representation of their family tree.
Comments and suggestions are provided in the comments section of the powerpoint and please reference
and blog post
The duration of the lesson is 4-5 one hour sessions (or until the students' art-making is complete) and includes multiple homework activities for students to being home and work with their families:)
