The teachers in Grade 5 had asked me to do a South West lesson they had seen on the Artsonia website. I could not find the lesson so this is what I did with the grade five students.
Students looked at images from our Southwest National Parks-Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, Canyon Lands, Arches, etc. Some students chose to replicate the images they saw, others took a more creative approach.
We talked about the landscape and the features they might want to include. They used black crayon to outline the images and filled in with chalk pastel.
