In second grade, students learn about Ancient Egypt in Social Studies class. Ms. Guiffre taught an art lesson that helped students bridge their social studies and art knowledge. In this lesson, students learned about the desert and the landscape of Egypt. They identified and created a background, middle ground and foreground using paint and torn paper. They added pyramids and camels to their collage as well. This lesson was adapted from another great art educator, Cassie Stephens.
