This Carlos Amorales: Discarded Spider lesson plan also includes:
Let's put those scary movies and dreams to work with an expressive art project. Kids make hybrid creatures like the ones seen in Carlos Amorales's piece, Discarded Spider. They attempt to show metamorphosis or change as the creature they create is melded from two different animals. The lesson concludes with a narrative story that describes aspects of the creature's existence. Tip: If you don't like Amorales's work, Bosch is always a great subject, especially when it comes to hybrid creatures.
