Name: Kami Griffin Date: 11-01-16 Grade/Level: Preschool- 2nd Subject/Content Area: Art Title of Lesson: Stamped Fruit Still Life Duration of Lesson: 30 minutes
Objectives 1. Given a still life for reference, TSWBAT organize fruits using overlapping with 70% accuracy. 2. Through the placement, TSWBAT determine how far or close the fruit are according to the overlapping of the fruit.
Standards/GLEs VA-CE-E2 Explore and discuss techniques and technologies for visual expression and communication. VA-HP-E2 Recognize universal symbols and how works of art communicate a universal language.
Lesson Procedures Introduction: (3 minutes) • TTW show students a still life picture of a bowl of fruit and will ask the class to raise their hands if they’ve seen a picture like this before? Also, does anyone have a picture like this in their house? • TSW talk about what the picture shows and what past experiences they have with a still life picture like this one. • TTW ask students if they know what a picture like this one is called. If they don’t answer still life, the teacher will introduce the term to the class. • Today we will learn how to organize fruits using overlapping with and DETERMINE HOW FAR OR CLOSE THE FRUIT ARE ACCORDING TO THE OVERLAPPING OF THE FRUIT.
Body: Direct Instruction (25 minutes) • Input: (5 minutes) TTW show students the history of still lives and ask students questions throughout. She will introduce overlapping and explain how to show it. TTW review the project steps. • Modeling: (5 minutes) TTW briefly model how to stamp the still life by using the markers and stamping the paper. She will be sure to use correct overlapping and stamp the farthest object first. The last stamp will be the closest to the viewer. Kindergarten- 2 grade will cut out shapes and glue onto a white sheet of paper. • Check for Understanding: (1 minute) TTW ask students questions on overlapping and the project instructions. She will also remind students not to touch the fruit ever because it will mess up the view for other students at the table. Also, when sharing the supplies, students will be asked to use one marker and one stamp at a time and be reminded not to wait on a color but to go on to another fruit. • Independent Practice: (14 minutes) TSW go to their assigned seat and be handed a paper. Students are to count the fruit in the bowl at their table and take inventory of how many of each fruit are there. Students will stamp the proper amount of fruit, then cut out the shapes. They are to paste the shapes down in the correct overlapping order. Clean up is 5 minutes before the class is over.
Differentiation • The 1st and 2nd graders will have a lesson differentiated by content because of readiness of the students. • Because the 1st and 2nd graders have a shortened amount of time, they will not be introduced to the history of still lives, but just on the terms needed to know for the project.
Closure: (2 minutes) • TTW ask students what are some things we learned today? How do you know when an object is closer than another object in a picture? • TTW remind students that along with the still life, we will be adding a contrasting background to these next class.
Assessment/Evaluation • TTW check students’ overlapping and placement of their fruit stamps. • If students are struggling with the overlapping, TTW give demonstrations at the tables to make sure the students are understanding. • In the closure, students will talk about what they learned about today. TTW know if students got the information if they mention the information from the slides and about what they learned during the project. • Why are they called still lives? How did you show that a fruit was in front of another fruit? Why don’t we want to outline the whole shape black?
