Texture Critters Lesson Plan

Lesson Plans

This project lets students explore simple shapes and textures. They draw an outline shape of an animal, then fill it in with as many textures as they can think of.

 

Grade Levels

Grades 3 through 8.

 

Time Required

Up to three class periods (45 - 60 minutes a period).

 

Lesson Objectives

To develop and promote an awareness of shape and texture.

 

Procedure

  1. Sketch an image on a sheet of paper and trace over it with a black marker. The black marker can be done after the animal is filled in because it may smudge if it is waterbased. Permanent markers should not be used with younger students.
  2. Fill in the critter with as many different textures as the student can imagine.
  3. Make a colorful outline around the critter.

 

Assessment

Each image should be clearly defined. Textures should fill the entire image and should be varied in their variety and complexity.
