Amanda Allen Integrated Lesson Plan 1.

Proposal: In this lesson, intended for 4th to 5th graders, students will learn about the different biomes around the world. After the students fully understand the vegetation and wildlife that are present in each biome, they will create a landscape painting of a biome they choose. Students may choose to paint the various animals that live in the environments they choose or print pictures off the internet and create a mixed media representation of the biome. 2. Grade Level: 4th-5th grade 3. Art concepts: landscape paintings, mixed media, painting with acrylic, tempera, and watercolor paints 4. Other concepts: biomes (tundra, desert, rainforest, grassland, taiga, temperate forest, savanna, chaparral), vegetation, wildlife 5. Objectives: a. Students will be able to identify the different biomes of the world and what wildlife and vegetation can be found in each. b. Students will be able to create an artistic representation of one biome of their choosing. 6. Standards: a. Grades 3-4: i. Standard 3, Benchmark 1, Indicator 2: compares basic needs of different organisms in their environment. ii. Standard 3, Benchmark 1, Indicator 3: discusses ways organisms use their senses to survive in their environments. b. Grades 5-7: i. Standard 3, Benchmark 3, Indicator 1: understands that internal and/or environmental conditions affect an organisms behavior and/or response in order to maintain and regulate stable internal conditions to survive in a continually changing environment. ii. Standard 3, Benchmark 4, Indicator 1: recognizes that all populations living together and the physical factors with which they interact compose an ecosystem. 7. Materials: acrylic and tempera paint, watercolors, paint brushes, paper, computers with internet access 8. Resources: a. http://kids.nceas.ucsb.edu/biomes/tundra.html b. http://library.thinkquest.org/C0113340/main.php?section=biomes c. http://kimhunter.ca/murals.htm 9. Instructional Sequence: a. Present the Powerpoint slideshow about the different biomes of the worlds. After describing the climate to students, have them predict what kinds of animals would live in these areas. b. Then show students work of professional artists that depicts the wildlife and vegetation in different biomes, such as the murals by Kim Hunter (Resource C above). Ask students if they can identify which biome is present in the painting.

c. Discuss with students artists history and the process that the artist followed to create their painting. Tell students that they are going to create a similar painting. d. Before having students choose which biome they want to depict in their painting, give a short demonstration about sketching lightly on the paper and then on how to use acrylic and tempera paint and watercolors. e. After you have showed students how to use the materials, let them choose a biome and have them begin sketching the layout of their painting and then begin to paint. f. Once students have finished their landscape and it has dried, allow them to get pictures of animals that live in their biome on the internet and add them to their paintings.
