      The Crayon Box that Talked

      Time: 1 Class Period Grade Level:
      1st Grade

      Materials/Resources:
      The Crayon Box that Talked by Shane DeRolf, pencil, white drawing paper,
      crayon template, crayons, scissors and giant crayon box

      Character Education Emphasis: Diversity and teamwork

      Character Education Discussion: Students will listen to story and then
      participate in a discussion. What was wrong with the box of crayons? Have
      you ever been afraid of or not liked something different? What happened when
      the crayons got to know each other better? Would the finished picture have
      been the same if they had not worked as a team? They were each unique but
      together created something wonderful.

      Art Objectives:
      · Each student will create an individual work of art
      · Students will work with a variety of art tools and materials
      · All student artwork will be assembled into one group project
      · Students will understand respecting differences and teamwork

      Procedures:
      · Trace crayon template onto white drawing paper using pencil
      · Draw a self portrait onto the crayon
      · Use crayons to color portrait
      · Try to make yours different (unique) from everyone else
      · Add your unique crayon to the rest of your classmates to form a
      group project
      · Display during February as a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King
      along with the text of The Crayon Box that Talked

      What Color is Your Food?


      Time: 1 Class Period
      Grade Level: K

      Materials/Resources: The Land of Many Colors by the Klamath County YMCA
      Family Preschool Klamath Falls, Oregon, stryofoam collage trays, scissors,
      glue sticks, gingerbread men cut from many colors of construction paper,
      magazines

      Character Education Emphasis: Peace and Respect

      Character Education Discussion: Students will listen to story and then
      discuss similarities and differences in people around the world. Why were
      the different color people fighting with each other? Were any of them happy
      when they were fighting? Did they solve any of their problems by fighting?
      Who was the peacemaker in the story? How did they solve their problems by
      getting along? Have you ever not liked someone because they were different?

      Art Objective:
      · Begin project by discussing the word "collage" which means to paste
      in French
      · Students will create a "self-portrait" collage by cutting out
      magazine pictures and gluing them to their collage tray

      Procedure:
      · Students will choose a gingerbread figure to represent themselves
      in their self-portrait collage
      · Students will cut out magazine pictures that represent their likes
      and dislikes
      · All paper cut outs will be arranged on the collage tray(covering
      the entire tray) and then glued down
      Students will share their completed artwork with the class and projects will
      be displayed to share with the entire student body

      Pablo Picasso: Abstract Art with an Attitude
      Time: 1 Class Period
      Grade Level: K

      Materials/Resources: Pablo Picasso by Paolo Cardoni, white glue, toothpicks
      plastic cups, several powdered tempera paints mixed with corn meal and
      Diamond Dust

      Character Education Emphasis: Perseverance

      Character Education Discussion: Students will listen to story and then
      discuss Picasso's childhood. How do you think Pablo felt in kindergarten?
      How did he feel when no one understood him? How would you feel? Do you think
      it's good that he kept drawing and painting until someone did understand?
      Do you think you need to "stick to" things until you get good at them? What
      would you like to be good at?

      Art Objective:
      · Practice hand/eye coordination while the student creates design with
      glue and sprinkles with tempera mixture
      · To understand texture, students will distinguish between smooth
      powder paint texture and corn meal texture

      Procedure:
      · Dip toothpick into container and drip glue onto mat board, creating
      lines and shapes
      · Use shakers to sprinkle on tempera mixture (use all colors, one at a
      time)
      · Sprinkle with Diamond Dust for added texture and sparkle
      · discuss different textures
