"EASY - ART" FOR THE CLASSROOM OR HOME SCHOOL
by Art Action-Laurie Carpenter
Visual Arts, Language Arts, Math
PROJECT OVERVIEW-PURPOSE: WHAT FUN IT IS TO COLOR, BUT THESE SHEETS ARE MUCH MORE THAN JUST THAT!
THEY ARE FUN ALONE, BUT, WITH A LITTLE EXTRA WORK, THEY BECOME ADORABLE THANKSGIVING GIFT BAGS.
Giving gifts and thinking of others, is such an important learning
experience for kids! And, when they can incorporate their own artistic
touch, it becomes even more appreciated. This "easy-art" project does
this, with only minimal preparation effort for the classroom teacher.
2 actual projects are included in the lesson:
Option #1: Using all steps, this lesson will provide the student with an
experience in art, language arts, writing, and math through simple
and easy addition.
Option #2: Shorten the process by simply having the students complete the practice papers, and go directly to the artistic gift bags, skipping the language arts-math involvement of the challenge sheets.
Printable challenge questionnaire (optional)
4 2-picture coloring sheets FOR FALL OR THANKSGIVING
Printable gift tags (optional)

As an art teacher, I, of course, feel that it is so important to incorporate art into the classroom activities - especially, if you are not fortunate enoughto have an art teacher or art room as part of your school environment. But, I also realize that classroom teachers are busy striving to meet all the common core requirements, and, thus, do not have time for planning and
creating many extras. THAT IS MY JOB!
