Cute little sock-snowman I've had in my room forever! It was made by the life skills students a long time ago.
Over the years I've been trying to come up with a really good and simple lesson plan concept to introduce perspective and point-of-view to the youngest group I can, and to have them understand it without frustration. This attempt seems to have worked with this year's group of 3rd graders so I'll adapt it a bit more and write it up for the curriculum.
(Your point of view or your eye. Elephant's eye. Ant's eye. Bird's eye. )
First, points of view. Each student looked at these photos and drew their own snowman, one point of view at a time starting with a plain ol' normal looking snowman.
Then we worked on a little perspective with the same snowman they created.
And I slipped in this video just to reinforce the ideas (and to keep it fun :)
Here are a few works in sketchbooks. I think the kids liked this one.
