The Painted Ladies of the Victorian Era -3rd Grade
We are very fortunate in the town that I teach in to have a large variety of Victorian era homes. As part of our art curriculum addressing local history, I focus on Victorian Houses with my 3rd grade classes. I tried something different this year, using some geometric templates suggested at Deep Space Sparkle, (thanks Patty!). I had the kids focus on exterior textures as we talked about the Industrial Revolution and the machinery that made it possible to produce a wide variety of shingles and decorative cut-outs.
