Social Studies Aug. 13-17

Greetings all! The following is the 8/13 – 8/17 work plan for 6th grade social studeies with Mr. Ketterer:

We are starting with africa for our human and physical geography and from there will be following migration routes towards Europe. Since we are starting with Africa and our students are no that familiar with African physical geography quite yet, we are starting out with a general report on the African country of the students’ choosing.

  • Monday:  Investigate the required information for the report
  • Tuesday:  Start Elaborating the Slide presentation (Be it PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides if at all possible, if not a Pages presentation will suffice.)
  • Wednesday:  Finish the Slides and start presenting countries one by one.
  • Thursday:  Finish presenting th presentation made by the students
  • Friday:  Hopefully by Friday everyone would have made and shown their presentation to the class.  From here we will do some trivia to get brushed up on our World Geography.

Hope you all have a good week.

Cheers,

Mr. Jack Ketterer

To evaluate this unit, the students will make a FOLKLORE PORTFOLIO. Construction paper, scissors, markers, color pencils, and pictures about honduran folklore are requested in every class to work on it.

ASPECTS TO CONSIDER for this project:

      This is class work which means that at least 80% of the work must be done in class.

      Examples of each type of folklore must be shown in the portfolio through pictures

      All the Narrative Folklore examples must be handwritten

There are four parts of the portfolio. Students will present advances each week:

VOCABULARY

 ELEMENTS OF ART: The visual components of art such as, color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value.

Line: An element of art defined by a point moving in space. Line may be two-or three-dimensional, descriptive, implied, or abstract.

Shape an element of art that is two-dimensional, flat, or limited to height and width.

Form an element of art that is three-dimensional and encloses volume; includes height, width and depth (as in a cube, a sphere, a pyramid, or a cylinder). Form may also be free flowing.

Value the lightness or darkness of tones or colors. White is the lightest value; black is the darkest. The value halfway between these extremes is called middle gray.

Space an element of art by which positive and negative areas are defined or a sense of depth achieved in a work of art.

Color an element of art made up of three properties: hue, value, and intensity.

  • Hue: name of color
  • Value: hue’s lightness and darkness (a color’s value changes when white or black is added)
  • Intensity: quality of brightness and purity (high intensity= color is strong and bright; low intensity= color is faint and dull)
  • Texture An element of art that refers to the way things feel, or look as if they might feel if touched.

PRINCIPLES OF ART: Balance, emphasis, movement, proportion, rhythm, unity, and variety; the means an artist uses to organize elements within a work of art.

Rhythm: a principle of design that indicates movement, created by the careful placement of repeated elements in a work of art to cause a visual tempo or beat.

Balance: a way of combining elements to add a feeling of equilibrium or stability to a work of art. Major types are symmetrical and asymmetrical.

Emphasis.:a way of combining elements to stress the differences between those elements.

Proportion: a principle of design that refers to the relationship of certain elements to the whole and to each other.

Gradation: a way of combining elements by using a series of gradual changes in those elements. (large shapes to small shapes, dark hue to light hue, etc.)

Harmony: a way of combining similar elements in an artwork to accent their similarities (achieved through use of repetitions and subtle gradual changes)

Variety : a principle of design concerned with diversity or contrast. Variety is achieved by using different shapes, sizes, and/or colors in a work of art.

Movement:  a principle of design used to create the look and feeling of action and to guide the viewer’s eye throughout the work of art.
