REVIEW:
This website was designed to help teachers teaching art to elementary school children and has lesson plans based on a variety of topics, historical time periods, and cultures. Each section of lessons has the plans, and related links. The lessons themselves show the concept, objectives, vocabulary, materials, procedures and evaluation. The site also accepts lesson ideas and includes a lesson plan format so that all plans are similar in appearance and content. The site is still growing but what is included here are ideas already prepared for art teachers that can be used as they are, incorporated into a larger plan or used as a springboard for developing new lesson plans. While the focus is on elementary students, all art teachers could probably be inspired by this site.
