Karla Banks Mooreland Heights 1st-5th Grades Math, Visual Arts October 31, 2011 Polygons Standards: Math 0306.4.1 Describe, compare, and analyze properties of polygons. Visual Art 2.6 Create works of art with an intended purpose or combination of purposes. Objectives: a) Students will identify polygons (square, rectangle, equilateral triangles, isosceles triangles, scalene triangles, right triangles, parallelograms, rhombi, hexagons, octagons, and pentagons.) b) Students will create an original piece of art using polygons. Vocabulary: polygon, quadrilateral, square, rectangle, equilateral triangles, isosceles triangles, scalene triangles, right triangles, parallelograms, rhombi, hexagons, octagons, and pentagons, collage, realistic, abstract Materials: images of Eric Carle’s illustrations, selected Eric Carle books, paper, various polygons cut our of paper, paper, glue, smartboard, smartboard file, Dragons, Dragons Presentation: This is a culminating project to wrap up our geometry unit. It is designed to review all of the vocabulary and shapes we have been studying. 1. Tell students that we are going to review the shapes we have been talking about in math for the last few weeks. Review the definition of polygon. Find polygons around the room and in the smartboard file. Review triangles and the 4 different types of triangles (right, equilateral, isosceles, and scalene). Review quadrilaterals and the different types of quadrilaterals such as square, rectangle, parallelograms, and rhombi. Review other polygons that have more sides such as pentagon, hexagon, and octagon. 2. Explain to students that we are going to use polygons to create a piece of art. We are going to create a collage. Tell students that a collage is a piece of art made of many different pieces. Our collage will be made from paper. We will use many pieces of paper put together to make a piece of art. Collage can be realistic or abstract. Ask students to define realistic and abstract. Accept reasonable answers and guide students to come to the conclusion that realistic art looks like what it is supposed to represent, but abstract art requires the viewer to use their imagination. 3. Direct students to look at some of Eric Carle’s artwork. Show the students the book Dragons, Dragons. Show them the different illustrations in the book. Point out that Carle used collage to create all of the illustrations in the book. Discuss how he overlapped the different paper to create new shapes. Discuss how Carle paints his own tissue paper and creates his illustrations from his paper. 4. Show several images of Eric Carle’s illustrations. Ask students what they see in the illustrations. Use guided questioning to get the students to notice different details. Talk about the details in the painting and how he used collage. (embedded assessment) 5. Since it is Halloween, we are going to create a monster or another imaginary creature. We are going to create a collage. Tell students that their collage needs to look like some kind of creature. It needs to be made up of at least 5 different shapes. You must be able to tell me the name of the shapes that you use in the collage. You can overlap the shapes and turn them in different directions. Be creative and have fun. 6. Pass out materials and allow students to create their collage. Question students about the shapes they are using as they work. Help students with glue. Closing: Have students tell the shapes that they used in their collage. Review what a collage is and how it is created. Evaluation: Students will be evaluated by guiding questioning, teacher observation, their level of attention/behavior, participation, oral responses, and collage. (rubric attached).
