ARTS IMPACT LESSON PLAN

Visual Arts, Science, and Engineering Infused Lesson
Warm and Cool Sunshades

Author: Beverly Harding Buehler Grade: Pre-Kindergarten


Enduring Understanding

Sunshades can keep us cool from the sun. Radial structures can support circular forms. Using warm and cool colors next to each other can create visual excitement.


Lesson Description

Students explore how sunshades – tents, parasols, umbrellas – keep us cool from the sun. Next, students discover the radial structures hold umbrellas and parasols open. Exploring the art of umbrellas from several different cultures, students also learn to identify warm and cool colors and understand how using them together can create visual contrast. Students design and build their own model sunshades from translucent paper and cardboard, and paint them with warm and cool colors.
