Hands-on Art Activities for the Elementary Classroom
Whether you have the luxury of teaching in your own art room or must carry your materials from classroom to classroom, Hands-On Art Activities for the Elementary Classroom is the resource for you. It offers a great collection of 80 fun and simple projects, which teach basic art concepts and don't need a lot of special materials, that are appropriate for any elementary school art class. The book is divided into four major sections: Fall, Winter, Spring/Summer, and Design Activities and includes a year's supply of seasonal projects, holiday activities, and activities that teach specific art techniques. All the projects contain a designation for the appropriate grade level, directions for both teachers and students, a detailed description and illustration of the activity, a list of the materials required, an explanation of how to prepare to teach the activity, and information about how the project connects to other disciplines.
