Montessori Lessons, Part 4


Student's Work

The Finger Print Art Lesson I borrowed from my Art Education professor.  Thanks Ann Marie!

This lesson required that the students use their imagination to find “things” in their fingerprint designs.

Materials:

  • Construction paper
  • Washable black ink
  • Markers
  • Pencils (optional)

Lesson Notes:

  • Students were very careful instead in being carefree, when making the dots
  • Had to work against connect the dots
  • They enjoyed getting their fingers dirty-the washable ink, takes awhile to wash off apparently

The Butterfly Blots lesson was a lesson I made during my studies at Marywood.  I wanted to blend inkblots with butterflies.

Materials:

  • Construction paper
  • Tempera paint
  • Brushes
  • Pictures of butterfly anatomy

Lesson Notes:

  • Paint dried too fast, need students to use more paint
  • Had older students as “helpers,” to prevent potential paint messes
  • Next time I would definitely emphasize blotting thicker amounts of the paint on-to avoid it drying so fast
