This is my second attempt at this lesson with my second grader's. I tried to cram this lesson in at the end of the 1st quarter and it was paced too fast and the work was rushed. It ended with only one out of three classes with finished pieces. So when I got the iPads back for 2nd grade this quarter I slowed the lesson down and had my classes try again. I talked about foreground and background while we created our animation pieces. The kids really enjoyed coming up with an underwater background for their squid. Overall this was far more successful the second time. To see the rest of Second grade's work click on my YouTube button in the top right corner of the screen. I plan to complete a second animation piece and talk more about foreground and background, introduce Rousseau's jungle paintings and have my second graders create a jungle scene with a hiding animal. Stay tuned.
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
