Re: Looking for lesson plan for perspective drawing

I think 4th grade is a bit early to introduce perspective drawing if
you mean linear perspective and not informal perspective. I don't
think enough students will be ready for it. Fifth grade will be better.
My suggestion would be block letters (their name) in both one and
two point perspective. It's best to do a lesson on block letters first.
If you have anything that could visually demonstrate the letter in
space that would help. Perhaps build one (in 3-D) out of cardboard
so they can visualize it in space.

       I'm from Kansas,  where the Legislature and BOE keep trying 
        to define the term "suitable" because our constitution requires
          the state provide a "suitable" education for all students
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
