Post It Writing Activity
It's quick, painless, and there is no wrong answer. I put up 3 landscapes for the 4th graders to look at. They differed in land form, time of day, and overall style. We discussed how a color scheme can affect the feel of a work of art. I gave each student 3 post it notes, and had them write one word for each picture. We then stuck them up over the pictures. The students were interested in who else wrote the same word as they did ( I banned "good", "pretty" and "nice"), as well as the variety of descriptive words for each painting. It very quickly gave me a chance to fit a little writing in, and let everyone be involved in the critique.
