    Weekly Family Project Video & Lesson: If I Was There
    In this week's #CreatetoLearn #FamilyProjects we learn that stories that are personally relevant help children understand the difference between fact and fiction. Watch the video here, then using the downloadable PDF, create figurines to represent themselves, and illustrate scenes from a story as they imagine, "What if I was there?" This activity encourages children to make connections between their art, stories, and personal experiences.


    REPLY to Participate: We encourage educators and families to ask questions, share artifacts, and access the expertise of @James Wells in the At-Home Learning Community Discussions.

    Drawing on Darwin

    Charles Darwin was a naturalist and geologist best known for his evolutionary theories. While visiting the Galapagos Islands he discovered amazing differences in sea shells. Using an art-integrated approach and this Charles Darwin's Findings #LessonPlan, prompt students to research Darwin and his findings then have fun creating their own colorful sea-turtle shell design using household materials.

    That's Fantastical!
    Portraits can be realistic or fantastical, but they all reveal something about the subject and the artist. Creating portraits helps children notice the similarities and differences between images of people. In our Create-to-Learn Writing kit, children learn how to read portraits, then create self-portraits and personal stories.

    The literacy activity bundle includes colorful art supplies and an informational activity guide so families can practice curriculum concepts together-and have lots of fun too!
    REPLY to Participate: Share your experience with the Writing Art-Inspired Stories Kits. How have you integrated this tool into your at-home learning? If you're interested in hearing how the Crayola Family Engagement kits can support your student's learning goals, please tag @James Wells or email our Crayola Education Team for more details.
