Art Connections DVD - Grade 1
The lessons in the Art Connections Series for Grades K-6 are each related to history, literature, science, social studies and/or art history/appreciation. Each grade level has 4 project-oriented lessons, presented in DVD format and supported by lesson plans. The lessons are designed as enrichment activities for students with a good background and understanding of art elements, principles and techniques - such as taught in the Arts Attack curriculum (or equivalent). They can be purchased either as a complete series or by grade level.
The Art Connections Grade 1 program has 2 lessons based on literature (The Owl and the Pussy Cat and Animals in Clothes) and 2 lessons related to science (Our Earth and Big Cats). The Grade 1 program has 1.26 hours of instructional video (shown to the students and featuring classroom demonstrations by other first graders), lesson plans, student drawing aids, teacher reference materials and much more. Being video-based, it can be taught by teachers or parents with little or no art or art education background, as well as by those with considerable art education training – achieving exceptional results in both cases.
