Project Review: Enchanted Lands
5th Grade Artists in Reno, NV explore Enchanted Lands
The lesson itself is really well-done. As a teacher, I know how to move students to the instructional goal despite my limited experience with the art standards. In turn, I felt successful and the students felt successful.
Managing Materials: We used “Numbered Heads” to have each person in a pod/group have a unique role in managing materials.
Creating Unique Works of Art: We would pause during Work Time, around the 15 minute mark, so students could do a short gallery walk and see where their classmates were going with the project. The pathways of learning in each lesson are really smart and students are able to apply their new understanding to the pieces they created. Moreover, they knew they had the latitude to add their own personal touches. This led to each piece feeling unique and individualistic.
