Putting Their All into Analyzing Art

Fourth-graders from Lakes Elementary School in Rockford used ArtPrize as a way to analyze art as well as brush up on academics. They were assigned five pieces of art to focus on, and filled out work sheets about the works.

Their assignment incorporated math (by measuring the perimeter), social studies (by locating on a map where the artist was from) and literacy (by writing their own captions for each piece). When they returned to school they shared their understanding of the art and highlights from the outing. The excursion was led by teachers Amanda Glass, Bree Bowen and Kristin Hubner.
