Texture - Bumpy, Wrinkled, Smooth?
Young scholars study textures and identify textures using satellite images. In this texture lesson, students study various objects and define their textures. Young scholars feel crayon rubbings and sort them into groups. Students use a book with satellite images to further study textures. Young scholars 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!
Visual Texture Stationery for Mother's Day
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.
Learners 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.
Let's Go Buggie!
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!

"Snake Supper" Sequence of Patterns

First graders complete a variety of activities about fall. They study a plant's life cycle and what happens to plants in the fall. They make leaf rubbings and discuss seed dispersal. They write a creative story about a seed and visit a local nature center.
Students make sequential patterns by using ants and following the model. They identify different parts of an ant by matching the picture to the word name. Pupils identify the ant's life cycle by creating a chart using pictures.
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.

Teachers will assess the expectations using information collected from both activities.
