I Am A Star

Adaptive Lesson

Barbara Short, Art Specialist

  • What is an Adaptive art lesson?
  • Students discuss how they can 'be a star' by helping others. They look at books with shapes and colors and name them. They then glue colored shapes on a long strip of railroad board -- punching holes in some of them to make peek-a-boo colors. Lastly, they fold, add stars and hang!

    Objectives and assessment criteria

    Students will:

    1. discuss why they are special (a star), and what they can do to help others.
    2. review shape names and differentiate between large and small.
    3. review color names and differentiate between light and dark.
    4. manipulate materials successfully to complete their art with their star on top.
