This week's Lesson Plan Wednesday is Origami Village Dioramas. I would suggest this project for 5th grade or older (my 5th graders do this). This is a lesson I modified from Blick Art Materials based on the supplies I have available in my classroom. I like this project a lot because it incorporates origami, sculpture, composition, drawing, and shading. It is a great project for later in the year because it allows you to re-visit previously taught concepts. BTW these ones aren't quite finished. Students still have to add houses in the background and add detailing, but I think you can get the general idea from these images.
You can view the lesson plan, which includes National Art Standards, on the Blick Materials Website by clicking here.
