Cinnabar Boxes (a.k.a. Chinese Lacquer ware)

Eighth graders explain the historical process of lacquer ware, list the characteristics of lacquer ware, and identify objects made of cinnabar, including their usage. In this cinnabar boxes lesson plan, 8th graders apply the process of subtractive carving and lacquering to a 3D form of original design as they create their own cinnabar boxes.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
