Re: Ancient Greece projects for 6th grade
- Make print foam printing plates featuring famous Greek buildings and architectural elements such as the Doric, Ionic and Cortinthian Orders. Print those on translucent colored vellum. Over lap the prints on a display board. Affix them with clear plastic push pins.Be grateful for luck. Pay the thunder no mind - listen to the birds. And don’t hate nobody.--Eubie Blakemyspace.com/plambermonthttp://tenlivesinqueenscounty.blogspot.com/2010/07/by-products-of-editing-and-layout.htmlhttp://lambermont-lambermont.blogspot.comhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/plambermont/

- I like the greek vases: sponged orange/rust paint on all tagboard areas not to be black,blk sharpies for the design/scene. I stress accurate (what the Gr. were doing) on thevases. Mount on forest green paper with squares of marble contact paper on thegreen. A lot of teaching can go into doing this. I've also done purple/blue watercolorson white butcher paper to denote the temples, etc. -- negative space is used. kOn Jan 12, 2012, at 4:46 PM, Jennifer Freck wrote:
- We did our Greek vases as crayon engravings on old manila folders as our paper. We did not just stick to red or black amphoras, however; the the kids had seen those in the lesson. For our take on the vases, kids made random squiggles and filled in the shapes with bright loud crayon colors. Then we colored black oil pastel on top and carved through the black oil pastel to the crayon designs. They were beautiful bright and colorful vases ....wild crayon colors engraved out with black background. We cut the vases out and glued them to a piece of white paper with a piece of Eric Carle style painted patterend paper as a strip for a tablecloth. Super graphic looking on the wall.

- I have been making Greek vases with 5th graders using orange construction paper and black sharpies. We look at examples of Greek vases and copy simple designs from the reference vases in their sketchbooks. The students then cut out their vases and draw in the Greek designs, leaving the cener space open for an illustration of a myth. I read myths to the syudents while they work on their designs (they love being read to.) The students illustrate the myth of their choice on their vase. We recently took our students to the Met in NYC and they spent a large part of their visit looking at the Greek vases, amazed to see designs they had drawn on 2,000 year old vases. It was a great experience for them.I also do a lesson on the orders of Columns - Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. I begin the unit with a PowerPoint of local buildings with the different orders of columns. After that the students are always coming in my room with reports of specefic types of columns from different buildings in town asking me to take a picture and include in the PowerPoint. The students draw a triumphal arch about their accomplishments with a photo of themselves in a toga walking through the arch as a hands on activity for the unit.
