Whether you have the luxury of teaching in your own art room or must carry your materials from classroom to classroom, <i>Hands-On Art Activities for the Elementary Classroom</i> is the resource for you. &#160; It offers a great collection of 80 fun and simple projects, which teach basic art concepts and don&#8217;t need a lot of special materials, that are appropriate for any elementary school art class. The book is divided into four major sections: Fall, Winter, Spring/Summer, and Design Activities and includes a year&#8217;s supply of seasonal projects, holiday activities, and activities that teach specific art techniques. All the projects contain a designation for the appropriate grade level, directions for both teachers and students, a detailed description and illustration of the activity, a list of the materials required, an explanation of how to prepare to teach the activity, and information about how the project connects to other disciplines.&#160;

"Jude Cataldo's new book punctuates classroom practice with lively, seasonal and engaging art activities. Her ready-made art lessons are easily applied to on-going subject areas to increase student learning?and to add a special art sparkle!"
?Susan Rodriguez, artist and author of Art Smart! Culture Smart! and other art resource books
