My fourth graders focus on Wisconsin history in their Social Studies class. Because of this, we focus on artwork dealing with Wisconsin. Trek bikes are made in Wisconsin so we brought in several bikes for still-lifes.The students were asked to really observe all the little details of the bike. The bike could be de-constructed on their page with different parts in different locations. They then painted their bike parts black using India ink. We talked about contrast in this lesson.
