Through this activity, students will understand that music is all around them and is involved in their everyday lives. Students will create their own tambourine after reading "I Got the Rhythm."
Students will form a connection between music and drawing. They will listen to clips of songs and will use artistic measures to express how they feel.
Children will create a fall tree using paint with Q-tips as well as their handprint.
Students will learn, through the book "Ish," to embrace their own work and be okay with their mistakes. Each student will crumple up a piece of computer paper and then paint watercolors on the outside. The paper will then be flattened, and the process will be repeated as many times as possible with multiple colors. Once this is finished, it will create a beautiful and unique watercolor art piece.
Children will be introduced to a variety of musical instruments in order to broaden their experience of music and sounds. Children will produce sounds with their own body parts in order to create a rhythm.
Children need to have art incorporated into their everyday lives. By reading a book and doing an artistic activity afterwards, the children will have a dose of literature and art.
This will serve as an arts integration lesson that will form a connection between art and literacy. Students will be read The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle, and after this introductory activity, the children will have an opportunity to create an art project in which they can create a visual and meaningful connection to which they have read.
