The Art lessons for this school year in the 6th Grade classes, follow the CLIL methodology (Content and Language Integrated Learning). To start I devised a lesson plan aimed at welcoming the new students.
A simple art activity where each student completes a worksheet about himself/herself. Here are the instructions:
1. Write and colour your name in capital letters in the rectangle below
2. Draw your avatar as a Mii character
3. Draw 4 features about yourself and write a brief explanation in English, eg: my family (draw your family) my age (draw a big coloured number) my favourite food (draw a slice of pizza) my favourite hobby (draw a camera)
Use coloured pencils and felt-tip pens
You can also use it as cover of the notebook.
