Ages 5-7 years old (recommended, but I have had 12 and 13 year old students knock the project out of the park)
Let’s look for Geometric shapes made by man and found in our home. Triangles, squares, circles, and rectangles are precise and regular. I have provided a practice sheet if you want to draw a shape you cannot find. I encourage my students to trace the shapes first, then draw them in the boxes next to the shape.
Grades K- 2nd
• Use various geometric shapes to create robots.
• Observe three-dimensional objects and see if they are geometric or organic shapes.
• Look for simple shapes in objects.
• Use fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination in drawing lines using pencils.
• Trace shapes on different colored paper
• Use Scissors to cut geometric shapes
• Variety of colored paper
• 9” x 12” or larger sheet of white or black construction paper
• Pencils and erasers
• Geometric objects found in your house
Art Curriculum Video Classes
The video lessons in this section are part of a Larger Art Course. The larger art courses cover all the Elements of Art and Principles of Design based on Nation Standards. In addition, I will provide vocabulary, examples, and full art lesson plans in a digital download PDF format.
Each lesson comes with the following:
• Step-by-step instructions for art projects
• Examples of other student’s work
• Elements of art and principles of design vocabulary and definitions
• Beginner or intermediate projects
You can choose a 4-week or 8-week plan from the larger courses. The bundled art classes are separated by age group, K-2nd, 3rd-4th, 5th-6th, and 7th-8th grades. Sometimes grades are combined.
