Students study textures and identify textures using satellite images. In this texture instructional activity, students study various objects and define their textures. Students feel crayon rubbings and sort them into groups. Students use a book with satellite images to further study textures. Students use the worksheet 'Bumpy, Wrinkled, Smooth' to make their own life-the-flap book.
Texture is the name of the game. Learners consider visual texture by creating rubbings from actual textured objects. They glue a variety of objects onto a piece of paper, then make a rubbing that shows each object's texture, visually. They make a map of their favorite places by making rubbings that represent each place. Neat idea!
We all love having a great project to send home for Mother's Day. Here, the class will discuss repetition, pattern, and texture found in Van Gough's Starry Night, then they will create a collage using each of the discussed elements of art. They'll create rubbings of their collages and then paint them with a resist technique. A great end result; perfect for mom.
Students identify and interpret the type of evidence found at a typical dinosaur dig and mimic a paleontologist by taking crayon rubbings of simulated bone impressions. After the rubbings are taken, the students reconstruct the complete skeleton and identify the dinosaur to which it belonged.
Here are some wonderful lessons on art for your second graders.

To celebrate art youth month, little ones get out the magnifying glasses and get close-up with bugs. They make scientific observations of bugs you bring into the classroom. Then, they use markers, clay, paint, or crayons to make artistic renderings of their tiny friends. A fun lesson!
Pattern recognition is a basic skill that can be used in art, language, and math. Young artists create snakes by stringing beads in a specific pattern. They discuss patterns and texture in art as well as in nature. This activity would be great as part of a station rotation.
Second graders create an abstract painting that conveys feelings of nonviolence. For this visual arts lesson, 2nd graders read "The First Step of Jainism" and discuss honesty, watch a digital story, discuss feelings after watching the story, paint an abstract painting that represents their idea of nonviolence, and write to describe their art. Included in this lesson is background information on Mohandas Gandhi and his philosophy of ahimsa.
Learners participate in numerous activities to explore characteristics of various trees. Over a period of one month, students make rubbings of tree bark, wax pressed leaves, identify and categorize them and organize a chart. Afterward, they listen to guest speakers such as a lumberman, carpenter, or woodcarver. Learners discuss national parks, forests, and the ecosystem for trees. Four week of hands-on activities are listed.
In the first section, students will create a diorama, that includes a local habitat and shows the plants, animals, and non-living components needed to sustain the area. Students will be using their notes and learning logs for reference, as well as doing research to ensure that they have a viable habitat. In the second section, students write a test. Teachers will assess the expectations using information collected from both activities.
