This is a great lesson for exploring literature through art. Art can be such a wonderful way to make learning about core subjects fun and engaging, especially for reluctant learners. I know you will enjoy this lesson! If you like this lesson, you will love our Teaching Literature Through Art Ebook.
The Teaching Literature Through Art Ebook has all the different genres of literature and illustrations from the original works and then instructions on doing related art. An example might learning about a novel, and then talking about Call of the Wild and looking at original illustrations and then drawing the lead dog. Poetry, tall tales, fantasy, couplets, essays and more are included. It combines the fun of art with the study of literature.
