I wrote two Student Learning Objectives, one for 5th grade and one for 6th grade (those are the only two grades that I teach). The 6th grade SLO was all about drawing a landscape that has depth. Below are some of the lessons that I taught. I would have liked to have more time with landscapes. I had more planned but we were not able to get to it all. One of these is a landscape painting using shades and tints to show atmospheric perspective. I got the idea for the lesson here. We weren't able to get finished with that one before assessments. I blame all of that on snow days.
If I write an SLO again about landscape drawing I am going to leave out one point perspective because I feel like that is a whole lesson in itself, aside from everything else I included.
The 5th graders learned about drawing self-portraits. We did a self-portrait collage by applying tissue paper with Mod Podge.
The following are side-by-side pictures of pre-assessments and post assessments by the same students.
