Just wanted to share info about some Mexican Folk Art lessons. I =
mentioned in an earlier post that we (the 3 elementary art teachers in =
our district) had a Architecture grant last year. This year we have a =
grant focusing on Native American Culture. Two years ago we had a grant =
on Mexican Folk Art. We purchased teaching materials etc. with the =
money as well as some consumables. One of our main purchases was the =
Oaxacan Valley video from Crizmac which is excellent. The video gave an =
excellent depiction of village life in the Mexican Oaxacan Valley - info =
on Days of the Dead, the marketplace, Oaxacan Woodcarvings, blackware =
pottery and much more. We used this video as our springboard or =
introduction to our cross grade level unit on Mexican folk art. The =
Gente del Sol video is very good too. All of our lessons and activities =
stemmed from the Oaxacan video and village life. We spent about 6 =
weeks on various lessons in each grade level. Each Art teacher (the 3 of =
us) developed their own lessons and we shared - sort of like piloting. =
There were many lessons - can't think of them specifically right now =
'cause I'm in a Native American mode. Let me know if you would like =
further info. We LOVED doing the Mexican unit.
