Celebrate Good Times

Use questioning to describe and analyze the artwork: </p><ul><li>"What do you see?" </li><li>"What is happening here? </li><li><span></span>"What clues make you think that?"</li><li> "What else is happening in this image?" </li></ul><p>Ask students to take a minute to think of a personal experience that this image reminds them of, then turn to a partner and share. This prepares them for the next step, which is to visualize a favorite community celebration and sketch in preparation for making a collage.</p>
