Hej, Bunkie, sorry to be so late in responding...the lesson I sent out
to Alix were social studies from AIMS, and some history assessment
stuff. If you really want it, I will send it via snail mail.
Yes, I do teach in a middle school in Lake County, just north of you. I
teach two blocks of language arts & history to 6th graders, and one
period of ART!!! I am always in the process of redefining my
curriculum, since there really isn't one, I get to do what I want. It
is fun and leads me into all sorts of exploration. I have been
incorporating many of the ideas that I have read here on the Getty, and
I want to thak you for all your ideas. You are very prolific and
The tissue cornstarch/liquid starch thing was using a wire armature, and
having the students tear colored tissue paper and wrap it on to the
armature, and then paint ech section with cornstarch...one streches the
paper to cover the loops and enclosed spaces made by manipulating the
wire. The other option is to dip the tissue in the liquidstarch and
then form it onto the armature. Whatever works. I also had them use a
papier mache which they painted, but they ALL like the tissue better.
We have been back to school for three weeks, and I wish all of you the
best of luck on Tuesday...
Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching?
