HUMAN ACTIVITY VS NATURE CONSERVATION (INCLUDING SUSTAINABILITY)


LESSON PLAN

LEARNING AREA: Visual Arts LESSON: 7 YEAR: 3 and 4

ACTIVITY: Recycled Animal Exercise TIME: 60 minutes

LESSON FOCUS: educating children on the effect of pollution and the importance of
recycling.


AIM: Our environment and the animals that inhabit it are being threatened by pollution, to
preserve our wildlife we all need to become aware of and involved in the importance of
recycling.

The students will:
4.2 Predict, experiment, and innovate with visual language and devices to enhance
knowledge and practice with skills, techniques and processes.

LESSON OUTCOMES:
That students will have:
Understood the negative impact that pollution has on the environment and its
wildlife and demonstrated this in the form of sculpture.
Created an animal their choice affected by pollution from recyclable materials
demonstrating a chosen style (such as, realism, pop art, figurative, expressionistic).
Investigated the detrimental effect of pollution and identified methods of
prevention.
Shared their animal with the class. Discussing the style and materials used to create
the desired style, why they chose this style and which artists have influenced their
creation, and how their animal is affected by pollution and how this type of pollution
can be prevented.
TEACHING PROCEDURE:
TIME STEPS RESOURCES/COMMENTS
5 minutes






1) Revisit the different styles of artwork
discussed in previous lessons (realism, pop
art, expressionist, abstract etc) and
brainstorm as a class how these styles
differ in the way that they deliver the
intended message of the artist.

List these on the smart
board and show the
power point used in an
earlier lesson which
shows the different styles
of art.

2) Point out to the class that pollution is
harmful to the environment and the
animals that live in it. Discuss the
different types of pollution (air pollution,
littering, noise pollution etc). Give an
example of an animal affected by
pollution, such as dolphins. Discuss the
importance of recycling towards
preserving our environment and
protecting its wildlife.

3) Using a computer ask the students to
research the types of animals that are
affected by pollution and choose one.
They also need to find out what sort of
pollution affects their animal and how this
can be prevented. This is to be recorded in
their journal. Once they have picked an
animal introduce the task: using the
recyclable materials they were asked to
bring in last lesson they will create their
own recycled animal sculpture. They must
choose a style of art and represent their
sculpture using the chosen style. They
may also use the provided art supplies
such as glitter and markers etc to decorate
their animal.

4) Allow the students time to create their
animal and provide guidance where
needed.

5) Once they have completed their animal
each student will briefly share their animal
with the class. Ask the students to discuss
what style of art they chose and what
materials they used to achieve their style.
Did any of artists we studied earlier in the
unit influence the creation of their piece?
What sort of pollution is their animal
predominately affected by and how can
this pollution be prevented/limited in the
future?

6) Pack up.
Ask students if they know
any types of pollution,
how it occurs, and what it
does to the environment.
Using the Smart Board list
their ideas and
mention/add anything
they may not have
suggested.


Computer, journals,
pencil/pen














Recyclable materials
brought from home,
scissors, glue/sticky tape,
glitter, pencils/markers,
cellophane/card/crepe
paper, paint etc

Encourage students to
ask each other questions
(by raising their hand)
about their animal, such
as what was the hardest
part of making your
animal? What were the
benefits and limits of the
materials used?
