Tracing Shadows

The art show was a big hit and we are wrapping up our units on "composition", moving towards spring break. Right now, I'm developing a unit for fourth grade which involves tracing shadows (see title link for a NY Times article on the artist Ellis Gallagher). Ideally, we'll have lots of sunny days in April to go outside and find interesting shadows. Also, check this neat video compilation of shadow art. Our "big idea" for April across the grade levels is "Finding Inspiration", and I think finding inspiration from shadows is pretty cool.

The journey of process intrigues me and I am always changing it up.
