Fifth grade just finished up their Imagine a Building lesson. They studied and discussed several examples of architecture and were charged with designing their own unique structure.
At the completion of the project each student filled out an Artists Statement worksheet in their sketchbooks. This worksheet was designed to get students thinking and talking about their art. It's one of the Common Core Standards!
I uploaded the photos to Artsonia. During centers time, students used the student computer to enter their statements. I was so impressed with some of the things they said about their process and work. We will definitely be doing this more often.
