The materials needed for this lesson are the most simple: paper, pencils and crayons or markers.
The lesson begins with discussion questions regarding a masterpiece by the artist, Balthasar van der Ast. This painting includes many interesting insects crawling around a beautiful still life. The lesson then leads the students to creating an imaginary scene of insects at a party. Each slide includes questions and statements for the students to think about including in their drawing.
I have taught this lesson to all levels, K through Fifth. My subs who have used this lesson have left feedback that they and the students thoroughly enjoyed the lesson.
I hope that this will be a well loved lesson for you and your students and that it helps you when you are in need of a sub lesson.
