This is a fun game I created for my students based on some of my Pre- and Post assessments. Students learn the Elements and Principals of Art. I also through in some Art History on some of the game boards. This game can be adjusted for just about any grade levels and can be a great way to do informal assessments.
For Black History month in February I teach my students about the African American artist Faith Ringgold and her style of art, which was Quilting. My favorite story to do is Tar Beach. I have my students imagine that they can fly, and ask them to draw themselves flying over their favorite place with their favorite person. they then write a story behind their picture around the frame. We then add lots of fabric to frame their story and place them altogether to design our very own class quilt. Here is a picture of my door. I like to always motivate them with a door design theme.

Here my students learned the history and process of screen printing and designed and made their own T-shirts for our Anti Bully Campaign. They loved the process and enjoyed making T-shirts for the entire school. My students ROCK!
