The lessons within this particular module all link to the indicators

c. Use guided Internet searches to investigate how artists represent the environment in different ways.

d. Explore inquiry questions visually (e.g., What are some unique characteristics of plant growth? How could we create our own representations of plant growth using different styles of art?).

In this lesson, students will first listen to the Tellegami Video. They can watch the video from a device at home. They also have the option of viewing the video from a school Ipad, computer if they do not have a device at home.  Afterwards, students would each create a list of ideas they have. They would then record themselves on their Tellegami App from a device at home and a school device can be provided if there is not one at home. The parents/guardians can share it in the comments on this page or email it directly to the teacher.

Module 2

Lesson #2

In the second lesson of this unit, students will be guided through an internet search of the Art Sask Website. The students may do this on a computer or Ipad at school if they do not have a device at home. This is meant to be done at home with the support and supervision of a parent or guardian.

This guided internet search through the Art Sask Website will expose students to multiple different mediums as well as styles in plant and environment art. The students will have the opportunity to see and learn the very different pieces of Saskatchewan art that have to do with environment or plants.

Evaluation: 
The following week in class, students will be asked to share what they appreciated or learned from the guided internet search. They will also have the opportunity to share if they went and explored the website with a guardian afterwards.
A participation mark will be given to each student. For students who prefer not to orally share, they will be given the choice of writing a short journal entry or drawing a picture of what they saw.

Lesson #3

This is the second guided internet search in the unit. In this lesson, students will follow along with the teacher to explore Linda Moskalyk’s website and look at the various ways that plants and nature are represented in art by the Saskatchewan artist.

Throughout the guided search, students will be posed questions to help guide them through the appreciation aspect. They will look into the similarities and differences in each art piece.

 

 

Evaluation: 

In class, students will be put into groups of 2-3 and in their groups, they will discuss what they saw in the online search. They will have the chance to share with their partner if they explored the website afterwards and what they found.

The teacher will circulate and listen to the discussions as well as pose questions to see if students did watch the video. No mark will be given for this evaluation. It will simply be an observation.

Project:

For the final project, students will be asked to create an art piece that either represents plants or a specific environment. Students will be presented with the project through the Tellegami Video.

Using the inspiration they received from the works that we explored together, students will get to create a piece inspired by nature. They may use whichever medium they choose. Four work periods will be given in class and the students may take their project home and work on it as well.

The piece will be presented to the class and the student’s peers will be given the opportunity to ask them questions about what they’ve created.
