Art or Not Art?

<p>Introduction to the concept of "what is art?" Students sort images by whether they think the objects are artworks or not. For the purpose of this discussion, a photograph per se is not categorized as art; it is an image of a plant, animal, toy, sculpture, etc. </p>

Community Neighborhoods

<p>Images support learning in art lessons about the big idea of Community. Compare/contrast urban, suburban, and rural communities. What do all communities have in common?</p><p>Activity: Print selected images on 8.5" x 11" card stock and laminate. Cut each image into several pieces. Number the backs of the pieces and place in a zip-lock bag with the same number. </p><p>Each student receives a puzzle piece and must work with their small group to re-assemble the image. Then make a list of clues about the community depicted. As each group shares their lists, the teacher records responses. Duplicate responses get a tally mark next to the word. </p><p>Teacher can then lead a discussion about what makes a community and help students make connections to similarities with their own local community.</p>
