2nd Grade UNIT PLAN
- Students will construct flip books telling a story about an important event that has happened in their lives or something that they wish would happen in their lives while exploring ideas of movement and narrative art making
THE UNIT PROBLEM STATEMENT:
- How do you tell a story about something in your life through a series of “moving” images?
- What is the most important event that has happened in your life? What would you like to happen?
- How do you create a moving picture?
- How do you tell a story through a series of connected images?
- What is the most important event that has happened in your life?
- What is something you wish would happen in your life?
- How will you keep your images consistent but still move your story forward?
- Does your completed flip book portray the action and story you were trying to tell?
- Can you tell what story is being told in the flip book?
- How do you put together a book?
- How do you illustrate a story, tell a story without using words?
CONCEPTS AND SKILLS:
- Students will create narrative art about events in their lives
- Students will understand art can be used to tell a story
- Students will understand how to capture movement in a still image
- Students will understand that connecting two images can make a continuous story
- Students will create art from memory
- Students will create art from imagination
- Students will use plans, ideas, and sketches to create a final piece of art
- Students will understand that in order to create movement they need to capture individual moments in time (stop motion)
- Students will successful construct a flip book
- Students will connect all of their drawings to create one cohesive story
- Students will use all materials and tools safely
- Students will be open to experiencing new ways of expressing their ideas
- Students will be able to take their ideas through multiple steps of creating
THE HOWARD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ART PROGRAM:
- Develop an ability to identify, describe, compare, and contrast artworks to develop a personal statement
- Demonstrate an ability to communicate visually using a variety of tools, techniques, formal qualities of art, and schema
- Line - Line can define shape, imply symbols, used to invent forms
- Shape - Shapes can be combined to make complex shapes, can be named, can imply symbols
- Space - Space can be created through use of overlap, Spatial relationships can be indicated above, around, below, and within objects
PRIMARY LEVEL (grades 1-2): My Art - All About Me
- “Children’s artistic behaviors are developed through directed exploration of tools, techniques, the formal qualities of art, and master exemplars. This fosters a sense of self that is encouraged within the artists using memory, observation, imagination, and/or narrative. Through a variety of media experiences, students are lead on a journey toward finding a place in their perception of the world.”
- Incorporates schema into a compositional format
- Uses strategies in making art that draw upon memory, observation, imagination, and/or narrative
- Crafts can be aesthetic, functional, and personal
- Express a complex idea from personal experience using lines and shapes
- Make a functional and personal art object by incorporating knowledge of materials and processes
- Flip Book: is a book with a series of pictures that vary gradually from one page to the next, so that when the pages are turned rapidly, the pictures appear to animate by simulating motion or some other change
- Movement: an act of changing physical location or position or of having this changed
- Animation: the technique of filming successive drawings or positions of puppets or models to create an illusion of movement when the movie is shown as a sequence
- Story Board: graphic organizers such as a series of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualizing a motion picture, animation
- Brainstorming: to produce ideas and ways of solving problems
- Photography:a picture made using a camera
- Illustration: an example serving to clarify or prove something
- Narrative: telling a story
- Critique: a detailed analysis and assessment of something, evaluate
- Technology Art: art which incorporates a computer or technological device
- Colored Pencils
- String, Needles
- Prezi on flip books
- Worksheet (Story Board and Ideas)
- Photos (digital flip books)
- Eadweard Muybridge
