for J. Couch-Osmelowski Arte520, Fall, 2007 Art Lesson Plan (Grade 1 – connect to classroom literacy unit) great job! Very thorough. Add the standards for language arts connection…would love to see ideas on the book! goals & objectives: clear!  Great! 1. Introduce sculpture art form to grade 1 students. 2. Introduce concept of three-dimensionality. 3. Reinforce ability to self-assess and react to others’ works. 4. Follow directions regarding safe handling and clean up. 5. Connect the written word and sculpture as communication forms. Procedure: I like the way you broke these up…very  practical… (Day 1): Recall story, learn about sculpture, sketch (plan) sculpture ideas 1. Read Where the Wild Things Are, by M. Sendak. Connect to current reading in general classroom. 2. Discuss Max: how he was feeling, his imagination, how he tamed the wild things (how would the children tame a wild thing) – activate schemata . 3. What could wild things look like? Should it be scary? Should it be silly? Will it look like an animal? Will it look like an object? List characteristics/features that seem to illustrate each (group discussion ). For example: SCARY SILLY HAPPY SAD pointy silly eyes smile sad mouth mad eyes feathers colorful bumpy sharp teeth silly hair smooth not colorful sharp horns squiggly horns horns saggy horns 4. Explain that the students will each have the opportunity to make a sculpture out of modeling clay and that each wild thing will be as unique as they are. 5. Show examples of sculptures in the classroom and on the internet.

“Does sculpture have a purpose? Who are sculptors? What do sculptors create with? What do sculptors do?” great site! I had not seen this one but added it to my favorites! Lizzy visits the sculpture garden . (National Gallery of Art) http://www.nga.gov/kids/lizzy/lizzy.html another great site! “This animated, musical story follows Gordon and Lizzy's adventure in the sculpture garden at the National Gallery of Art. Follow the story or use the map to explore many different kinds of sculptures. You see Lizzy's drawing and information along with a photo and other information each sculpture.” 6. Use the Socratic method to discuss what materials may have been used in the representative pieces, what tools the artist may have used, and how a three-dimensional object is different from other art forms. 7.
