4th Grade Surreal Landscapes

The next few projects that I'll be posting were designed by my student teacher, Mrs. Heimlich. She has been here for eight weeks now and is nearly finished with her time student teaching here at Thomas Elementary. 

This project is inspired by Salvador Dali and his surrealist paintings. The idea behind it was to choose one animal and repeat it three times. One part of the animal had to be changed or exaggerated. Students then cut out pictures from magazines to create the bizarre dream-like images associated with surrealism. 

The lesson plan can be downloaded here. A word of warning- Mrs. Heimlich's lessons are required by the university to be extremely detailed. Some of them have been over 15 pages long!
