The World Around Me

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet
This The World Around Me lesson plan also includes:

Have your learners use their surroundings as inspiration for an art project. Class members first examine and discuss art. They then choose an area and spend five days taking down observations in written and sketch form. These observations will be the starting point for original works of art in their own choices of medium.

Classroom Considerations
  • Find the referenced artwork in the Artwork and Artists and See and Compare tabs on the lesson webpage
  • The website students explore during the preparation stage is a great resource for examining art and an artist
  • Includes plenty of supporting materials, such as vocabulary, a rubric, extension ideas, and more
  • The Create tab in the plan says class members should visit their local site for five weeks, but what they really mean is an hour each day for five days
