On Top of the World

Adaptive Lesson

Barbara Short, Art Specialist

  • What is an Adaptive art lesson?
  • Students look at a globe and discuss what is land, water, and ice/snow and how the water currents move over the earth. They paint water on a circle, cut organic shapes to make ice and continents, and put themselves where they live... on top of the world.

    1. look at a globe and differentiate between water and land.
    2. consider that the water is always moving over the earth.
