Susan Newman has taken her passion for art, environmental conservation, and teaching and combined them into a fantastically cohesive, easily taught series of 6 lesson plans. Each is meant to be taught once a week, in about 45 minutes, though they could easily be compressed into a shorter spread of time. The Author has provided a clear and easy to follow outline, materials needed are listed for each lesson, and the Common Core Standards are laid out, making it easy to justify the subject matter and the art projects, even for the most stringent districts.
It's a well written, well aligned unit that can offer a way to get students thinking about the environment and art effectively and in a unique way.
This book is a great resource for teachers to get kids to express themselves through art, while at the same time explore their love for nature (specifically frogs). I appreciated the author's style, as she teaches valuable lessons through different hands-on assignments.
If you are looking for a book to help you engage kids with creativity, this is perfect for you! Kudos to you Ms. Newman. If more people cared about the education and wellbeing of children like you do, we would live in a much more pleasant world.
Really. Get this curriculum to your local school board. Thank you Ms Newman for a wonder resource
