Re: Africa ideas needed
- I'm still planning - I hope to figure out all my lessons/projects for
artwork to be on display as well as some simple make and take things
for the Family Art Night in May.
So I would love any ideas or lessons you can give me. I want to do a
variety to try and cover many different countries of Africa. I'm not
going to do any African-American projects with these (I will do these
at other times separate from this unit)
I know some things I want to do with some grades, but I haven't
finalized how to do them.
I did take a look at your photos - I really like the mandalas.

> Happy New Year everyone! As the end of the first semester is
arrivingsoon, I need to begin planning for my spring family art night.
I'vedone this the last two years with great success. The night
includes anart show throughout the school, make-and-take art
activities, food,music, and fun.Each year is a different theme. My
plan is to havearound 5 different themes then repeat them. My first
one was Gettingto know the Artists - which all of the displayed
student artwork andmake-and-take art activities dealt with a famous
artist. The secondwas the art of Mexico and Latin America. So - this
year is going to be Africa. I've purchased a few resourcesand have
done a little surfing - but haven't decided on projects yet.Any ideas?
I teach k-6 and like to have each grade do at least oneproject with
the theme - some grades do two. I like to immerse thestudents in the
theme. I also need some activities for the night thatare easy enough
to do within a 10-20 minute time.(I set up stations inthe gym or
different rooms for these activities)Thanks for any ideas!Theresa
