Students discuss the difference betwen two-dimensional vs. three-dimensional art. For this art lesson, students discuss what symmetry or balance is in art and construct a symmetrical and an asymmetrical mobile.
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.
High schoolers, 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 sculptures of a human head with Sculptamold. They discover the differences between two and three dimensional art. They combine art history, aestetics and personal expression to create a sculpture.
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 create 2-3 poems, a children's story, or a two or three dimensional piece of art.  In this Romantic Period lesson plan, students discuss the historical background of the Romantic Period and relevant literary terms.  Students analyze and interpret texts from the Romantic Period.  Students then create a work using Romantic characteristics to for a class exhibit. 
Students create sculptures of a human head with Sculptamold. They comprehend and apprecitate portraits and sculptures of the human face as art forms and the opportunity to incorporate human feelings and emotions in their own art. Students focus on the differences between two-and three-dimensional art. They are shown ways to create sculptures.
The three R's are, reduce, reuse, and recycle. Third graders use recycled materials to design and create an environmentally themed piece of art. They discuss and examine major art works that were created using recycled materials, then they get to work creating with trash!
Tenth graders apply their knowledge of similiar polygons to make conjectures about similarity among three-dimensional models. They test their conjectures by measuring three-dimensional objects and comparing corresponding lengths of edges and angle measures, surface areas, and volumes.
Students 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.
Sixth graders dentify and draw two-dimensional representations of a three-dimensional object. Students investigate the views of an object and determine that three views are required (front, one side and the top).
Sixth graders identify and replicate two dimensional illustrations of three dimensional objects. In this spatial visualization lesson, 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 are assigned to shape groups and explore three-dimensional shapes. They review math skills and two-dimensional shapes.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, you can add art to any activity! While little learners are discovering why fish have specific body parts such as, scales, fins, and gills, they start making three-dimensional fish forms. Children will use clay and a variety of common household items to sculpt their beautiful fish. The fish can act as a starting point for more discussion or can be labeled using pins and card stock. Tip: Making a fish might be difficult for very small children, use a fish cake or cookie mold instead.
Second graders explore art in two- and three-dimensional forms through hands-on experiences. By examining how animals appear in different two- and three-dimensional artworks, students see the difference between shape and form.
Students use a computer program to create a two and three dimensional polygons and create congruent figures. They demonstrate slide, flips and turns using the computer program.
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.
Middle schoolers will have a wonderful time recreating the tomb of Prince Liu Sheng of the Han Dynasty. They'll research and discuss the politics and religion of the era, as well as how archaeologists infer what the past was like, based on what they find. The class will also use maps and images to construct a three-dimensional model of the ancient tomb. Fun stuff!
Eighth graders engage in the art of self-portraiture using a variety of media. Students learn to analyze and achieve expression and emotion in portraits. They combine drawing, basic photography, computer-generated art and low-relief sculpting techniques to produce three self portraits.
