Texture Discovery

7th Grade Texture Discovery

The Fegely 7th graders explored the elementsof art texture. The students were introduced to texture through the use of a PowerPoint presentation with guided notes.

To hook the students into the lesson we conducted a texture discovery.

Before the students arrived, I placed 20 paper bags around the classroom with different textured objects in each bag.

The students were paired up into groups of two and were given a teacher made worksheet. The worksheet asks the students to describe the way the object feels and also to guess what they believe the object is inside of the bag without looking at the object.
