Hi Jill, I inadvertantly deleated your address, so I'm putting this 'out
there.' I have done the paper amphoras using black and orange paper.
After showing different styles and examples, I let them choose a theme
to work with. They liked it and it only took 2 class periods for
most. The paper mache are definately more fun sounding, but I was
limited by time and supplies. I know of another teacher who has her
kids design coins out of brass tooling foil to follow a Roman unit. As
far as Israel, I'm stumped- I am going to do an Islamic Art unit this
year using symbols( characters?) and style from various examples. Maybe
you could adapt this idea to Israli symbology.? We will do a printmaking
lesson, printing the image four times to create a unified whole on the
paper. I know it sounds confusing. I can give more details if you need
me to. betsy
