Goal

The goal of this project is to introduce geometric shapes and organic shapes, primary and secondary colors to the kindergartners while explaining through actual example, 2D and 3D differences. 

 

What will be done with my students

Kindergartners will produce imaginary monsters. First, we will read the book Go Away Big Green Monster and talk about imaginary and reality. (noting the difference between reality and imaginary is a FL art standard). Next, the kindergartners will use colored paper, scissors and glue to come up with their original, imaginary monster. (cutting, gluing and using tools correctly are all FL art standards). Finally, I will send our 2D monsters to a high school ESE art teacher. Ms. Bryan teaches 20-25 mild ESE students art.
Along with teaching these special students art, she also guides them with life skills. These students will design a 3D monster using the supplies I provide, the 2D monsters from the kindergartners and the sewing machines in their art room. When the 3D monsters are complete the high school students will send the 2D and 3D monsters back to my kindergartners and we will then explore the difference between 2D and 3D art. 

 

Benefits to my students

The benefit to this assignment/project is that my kindergartners can see their 2D art become 3D art. (acknowledging the difference between 2D and 3D art is a FL art standard and a very difficult one for the little ones to comprehend). With this project the kindergartners will have a better understanding of this difficult standard. This benefits the high school students as well. The high schools students have a variety of special needs and this simple sewing project will help them follow directions, while using the 2D monsters provided by the kindergartners and learn a basic life skill in the process.
