Outside Is In: "Be a Tree"
Here’s a lab oriented fine arts lesson from the Cispus Learning Center:
Have students identify characteristics of trees. Visit trees in the school yard. Have the students do tree dramatizations, using their arms as the branches and their legs as the trunk.
- How does the tree look during a storm?
- How does a fruit tree look in the spring?
- How does a young tree look in comparison with an old tree?
- How does the tree look during each of the seasons?
After feeling and showing what it might be like to be a tree, have the students paint pictures of them.
