Art Enrichment- week 7

Kindergarten and First Grade

Our project is shape people!

Kindergarten: We have been focusing on 3D shapes the last two rotations, but this week we will be focusing on regular 2D shapes! 2D shapes are flat and one sided, unlike 3D where you can see all sides of the shape!
First Grade: Just like last week when we used shapes to create abstract fruit/vegetables, we will be using shapes to create people!
Please use these shapes: Circle, Oval, Rectangle, Square, Rhombus (or diamond) Triangle and Trapezoid to create a person!
You can use as many shapes as you like, and you do not have to use them all. Also, your person does not need to look like you, it can look like anyone!

Second Grade:

For our assignment, you will be using measurements to complete a skyline!

Materials:
Coloring medium
Pencil
Ruler
Piece of Paper

1) Our measurements we are using for the skyline are the last four digits of your phone number!
I used PAE's number so my numbers are 4554. Those numbers are the length (how tall) your buildings will be. The width of each of your buildings should be 1 or 2 inches wide. ( your choice!)
2) Hold your paper vertically, so you have the shortest side closest to you.
3) Using your ruler, you will measure your first measurement -from the one inch line you just created- That means: your ruler should be lined up with the bottom of your paper) and draw a line up to your first length. Since mine was 4, I drew a line and stopped at the number 4.
4) Next I held my ruler horizontally to make the width of my building. My first building was 2 inches wide. Then I drew one final four inch line to create my first building.
5) You will continue this three more times for each digit of your phone number. Remember: you can choose how wide you want your building to be, just not how tall!
6) Once you are finished, I would like you to add your measurements together for each building. My first building was 4+2 = 6. I would put six windows in that building. Do this for all four of your buildings.
*Edit* If you noticed that my number of windows is NOT correct, you would be right because I multiplied my numbers on accident!! You will just be adding!
7) When finished, color in your skyline! Be creative and it does not have to be a nighttime skyline!

Third Grade:

We are going to draw city buildings using more math techniques for our project.

Materials:
Coloring medium
Pencil
Paper
Ruler

1) Our measurements we are using to create our buildings will be the last 4 digits of your phone number.
I used PAE's number so the length of buildings are 4554
2) Those numbers are the length (how tall) your buildings will be. You may choose how wide you would like each of your buildings. but you must have FOUR buildings in your picture.
3)First, I created a one inch measurement that was the length of the entire paper to create the road.
4) Next, using your ruler, you will measure your first measurement -from where your one inch measurement-
That means: your ruler should be lined up with the bottom of your paper) and draw a line up to your first length. Since mine was 4, I drew a line and stopped at the number 4.
4) Next I held my ruler horizontally to make the width of my building. My first building was 3 inches wide. Then I drew one final four inch line to create my first building.
5) Do this for the last three digits of your phone number. 
6) Please write what each measurement is after you draw it. Just as I have in my photo example.
7) Next calculate the area and perimeter of each building. Area = Length x width and Perimeter= side + side+side+ side. Your teacher and I want to see your work when you pass in your city. It can be on a separate piece of paper or written as a comment with your photo.
8) Your final step is to create your city! Draw your buildings however you want. Create any type of store you can think of. Please color in everything and add details!

Fourth Grade:

There are many different careers you can have as an artist. Artists are not just people who paint or draw. They are also people who design and create many different things such as clothing, video games, movies or buildings. A person who plans, designs and oversees the construction of buildings is called an architect.

Architects not only just draw what spaces look like, they also calculate measurements of how big each room or space will be.

For your project this week, you will all be architects.  

I want you to design your very own dream room! 

Materials:
Coloring medium
paper
pencil
ruler
You are going to calculate the area and perimeter of not only the room itself, but each object you put into your room.
Using your ruler, you will begin by drawing a box, paying attention to how many inches you make each side.
Those are the measurements you will use for your math problems.
Next you will draw what you want in your room. In my example, I put a bathroom and a large closet into my room. So I measured how many inches I made each "room" and wrote that measurements on their line.

Once you are finished designing you must calculate the area and perimeter.

Area= Length x width
Perimeter= 2 length + 2 width or side+ side+ side + side.

-You must have at least 5 objects to calculate both area and perimeter for.
If you would like, you may color your dream room in when you are finished.
