I have grouped my lessons into themes or units. Some examples are
"People", "Animals", "Architecture", "Animation", etc. These units last 3
to 5 class periods. I have all of my grades (1 - 5) working on the same
unit at the same time, but at their own level. This way all displays and
examples revolve around one topic in various mediums and styles. I have
found that this really helps the kids to see the diversity of cultures. We
can compare how people, animals, etc. are protrayed through time and in
various countries. I have had great discussions, even with my younger
students, on the differences of how people are drawn from ancient Egypt
through Picasso. It is great to see them pick up on how diverse the world
is (and was!).
