I need to pick some experienced brains. This was my first year as a
full-time public elementary school art teacher. I tried a lot of different
types of lessons and projects with my kids this year, and as a result there
wasn't as much "connectedness" (is that a word?) from lesson to lesson as I
would have liked. I am now trying to put together units for next year that
will last anywhere from two to four or five class periods for each grade.
I would like to be working on the same unit or themes for all grades at the
same time, but doing age appropriate pojects with each class. My hope is
to "transform" my room and display areas with each unit using work from
each grade level. What I am looking for from you is suggestions for unit
topics. Have you had more success using "time period" or "cultural" units,
or units that revolve around particular artists, or units that revolve
around a medium or media, etc. I would love to hear your suggestions and
ideas.

Thanks!

Julie
