Ken's idea is great - are we in the middle included? I've found myself
simplifying some of my HS lessons for the 7th and 8th grade and they
might work. It all depends on what they've had before?
I just did compliments with the 7th grade - symmetrical designs, made
from their name(elementary connection) and then they painted with their
choice of compliments. Most turned their names into
bugs/monsters/aliens. They are BRIGHT! But they really got the point,
and they were fun. In HS I might emphasize the design aspect, perhaps
assymetrical.
A lesson that was very successful in HS was warm and cool designs using
magazines. Students create 2 abstract designs using a straight or curved
lines. Number or letter each 'piece' and then cut out. Use magazines to
find warms and cools, then cut out every piece and put it back together
like a puzzle. They can see how value and intensity create the illusion
of space.
Vicky, in MI - where it got cold Again?! Global warming or what?
