Resources! Aboriginal Art

Yesterday, I posted a new printable lesson plan on Aboriginal Art and Contour Line.

Today I want to give you some resources I use to make this lesson even more powerful.

First of all, Power Point.  I recently added a new section to my Lesson page with downloadable Power Points that correlate with my lessons. Here is the Power Point I use with the Aboriginal Lesson.

You can download it by clicking on the link below, or going to the Lesson page, where it will have its permanent home.

I also want to share with you my visual library. I simply took some images I found online, put them into a Word Doc and then trimmed them down for student use.  These are for educational use only.  Read this post about how I use visual libraries to get the most out of my students.

Click on the link below to download the Word Doc with these Visual Library images.


I hope these resources help you make the most out of this lesson!

    Thanks for the posting Jessica! I did just what you must have and started searching for pictures of animals to create my own visual library. I too often get a student asking for me to draw an object that I don’t have a specific visual memory of and go searching for one. Keeping a group of items like these in a file will be very helpful.
    Thanks once again!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Kellie, I am glad you found it helpful!

    Great lesson! Thank you for sharing. Would you be willing to email me the visual library? I keep getting a corrupt file notification and I really want it. :)

    • The link should be fixed- Thanks so much for letting me know, Brook, and enjoy the Aboriginal Lesson!
