Filled with imaginative activities and interdisciplinary connections, this invaluable guide encompasses the complete How Artists See series. With the publication of How Artists See Heroes last fall, Colleen Carroll rounded out her acclaimed How Artists See series to twelve innovative, best-selling titles. From the personal to grand scale, abstract ideas to concrete realities, from Feelings to Cities, each book presents a diverse selection of artwork accompanied by engaging, conversational text filled with thought-provoking questions and imaginative activities designed to teach children about the world by looking at art, and about art by looking at the world. This new "omnibus" edition of the How Artists See Teachers? Guide contains creative, educational activities for using the How Artists See series in the home and classroom. Each chapter in the new guide covers an individual volume in the series: Animals, America, Artists, Cities, The Elements, Families, Feelings, Heroes, People, Play, The Weather, and Work. Teachers will love the standards-based activities that explore artistic concepts and interdisciplinary themes and reinforce concepts children read about in each volume of How Artists See. For easy lesson planning, each chapter is cross-referenced to the national standards in the main content areas, skills are organized with a scope and sequence chart, and a glossary is provided for easy reference to terminology that appears throughout the guide.
