Why Lesson Planet?
Here is a fabulous series of lesson plans on four of the most celebrated artists of the Old Western period in American history. Learners study the works of Charles King, George Catlin, Albert Bierstadt, and Thomas Moran. The pack is filled with terrific images of their works and meaningful educational activities. The hope is that the images will help pupils to develop the ability to interpret works of art, and describe how works of art create meaning. Fantastic!
