Art can be found anywhere, even in the class recycle bin. El Anatsui is an artist that uses found materials to create two and three-dimensional art. Kids examine his techniques, discuss the differences between found art forms, and then work in groups to create their own art. Photos, resource links, and art notes make for an easily executable lesson.
Students choose characters from a recently read novel and turn two-dimensional artworks into a three-dimensional portrait that can be viewed in the round.
Students discuss the difference betwen two-dimensional vs. three-dimensional art. In this art lesson plan, students discuss what symmetry or balance is in art and construct a symmetrical and an asymmetrical mobile.
Third graders consider space and the techniques artists use to create three-dimensionality within a painting or drawing. They examine works by Millet, Bruegel and Demuth and then create original drawings that explore the effects of dimension.
Sixth graders identify and replicate two dimensional illustrations of three dimensional objects. In this spatial visualization instructional activity, 6th graders practice viewing objects from various sides. Student participate in stations to view various cube orientations. Students then create a building to practice three-dimensional spatial visualization.
Fourth graders make models of three-dimensional figures and then use these play dough figures to observe and count the vertices, edges, and faces of the figure.
Students, during this twelve week series of lessons, learn basic anatomy through life sketches of human skeletons and shells. They learn fundamentals of line and convey life through sketches learning science through art.
Students create 3 dimensional art. In this sculpture lesson, students collect objects that represent their community's values to include in a 3 dimensional sculpture. Students write a paragraph explaining the chosen theme of their sculpture and work in groups to create a tableau with a "frozen body pose." Factual information about sculpture is included.
Young scholars examine how feelings of caring and working together can be expressed in works of art, and define the terms two-dimensional and three-dimensional. They design and create celebratory hats using three-dimensional paper techniques.
Students examine works of art that convey the idea of working together and analyze how artists use foreground, middle ground, and background. They use two-and three-dimensional materials to create a work of art.
Now this is the type of activity that can engage the whole class. After completing a unit on fresh water ecosystems and animal life, learners help design and create a three-dimensional mural. They use what they've learned in science to inform the choices they make in art. The full instructions and materials list is included to take the guess work out of the project.
Learners create a three dimensional model of buildings in Ridgewood. For this building lesson, students look at architectural sketches and blue prints of buildings. They design and create their own buildings from foam board and cardboard.
Third graders photograph examples of three dimensional shapes on a school grounds walk. In this geometric field trip lesson, 3rd graders collect and share examples of cubes, pyramids, prisms, spheres, cylinders and cones in photographs taken around school.
Apply geometric properties and formulae for surface area and volume by constructing a three-dimensional model of a city. Learners use similar and congruent figures and transformations to create a city of at least 10 buildings. They trade with classmates, who calculate surface area and volume of some of the structures. Refers to a Discovery Education video/DVD to support and enrich the project; a link takes you to a website to order it. Charts mentioned are not attached.
Young scholars work collaboratively to create small "museum cards" describing student-created metallic art. This lesson can be used as a cross-curricular extension involving one English class and one Art or Metalworking class and includes a final assessment.
Students are assigned to shape groups and explore three-dimensional shapes. They review math skills and two-dimensional shapes.
Students evaluate visual arts by creating furniture designs. In this three dimensional art instructional activity, students utilize the web to examine different artist renderings of furniture, sculpture and architecture. Students utilize paint to create a new design for an old wooden chair in their classroom.
Third graders spend time handling, observing, constructing, and describing three dimensional shapes. They discover strategies to compute the number of cubes that fit inside a rectangular box. Students work together in groups to create a box city.
Students identify both two and three-dimensional shapes. In this geometric shapes lesson, students listen to a teacher led lesson about the island of Puerto Rico. They look at the symbols and shapes on "Puerto Rico Quarter Reverse" on a transparency. They complete associated worksheets by drawing items in the classroom that match the given shapes and coloring the coin.
Fifth graders explore the art of puppetry. They design and create their own puppets using helium balloons. They create the three dimensional features for their selected mammals and felt shirts. They perform an impromptu play citing the information they found during their research.
