Art class warm-up with 3rd-5th grade: Art is...

I was recently inspired by Tumblr Artful Artsy Amy and her post "What is Art." I decided to try it out as a nice warm-up for my 3rd-5th graders on their first day of class.

We watched and discussed Amy's slideshow, "What is Art" and then wrote our own answers or definitions on our paper hands.  I loved the answers and I loved that my students were actually thinking of solid answers.

My end product wasn't as aesthetically pleasing as Artful Artsy Amy (I had hands written on every which way!) but the overall message gets through!  Plus, I have a great bulletin board for curriculum night.
