Lesson Nine Integrated Concepts Social Studies: interdependence of people, resources, and the environment Visual Art: weaving, sculpture, qualities of art materials Science: natural resources, minerals, plants Mathematics: attributes, three dimensional shapes
Can you identify the art object in this photograph? From the way it looks, can you predict how the surface might feel? What are some words you could use to describe the texture? Do you think this object would be cool or warm if you touched it? Do you think this object has a use, or is it just created for people to look at and think about?
What can you predict about the size of this object? Explain how you can tell. Do you need more information to be sure? What could we put into the picture to help viewers know the actual size?
What materials may have been used to create this object? How would people get the material to make this object? What tools do you think they need? How much does it appear to weigh? If someone gave this object to you as a gift, what would you do with it?
Now let’s examine a very different looking art object. Can you identify what type of object this is? How do you know? Do you know how it would feel if you could touch it? Is it heavy or light? What is the texture of the surface? How large does it appear? What are some ways you imagine it could be used?
What do you know about basket weaving? How would you describe the materials that are used to make baskets? Where would the artist get these materials? How would you explain to someone how to make a basket?
Can you describe (explain) some of the ways that people have used baskets in the past? What are some ways that people use baskets now? What could you do with this basket?
Let’s compare and contrast these two objects. Describe some attributes that both objects share. Describe some ways they are different. Look carefully at: colorfunction (use) shape/formmaterial size pattern texture weight
