How Art Made the World: Learning Resources

Using the PBS documentary "How Art Made the World" as a jumping off point, these five lessons ask students to think about fundamental concepts such as how the human form is represented, styles of portraiture, the messages that art conveys, art as an act of self-expression, and using art to communicate personal memories. Each lesson includes learning objectives, the materials needed for the lesson, the national standards addressed, and classroom activities. Although most suited for grades 9-12, these plans could be adapted for middle school students.
