Two great lessons that I have had a lot of success with in the past came to mind! The first is called a FUNDRED dollar bill. More info can be found on their site http://www.fundred.org/
The SECOND super fun and easy project was inspired by one of my FAVORITE places to eat: Tropical Smoothie! They designated June 19th as National Flip FLop Day! Patrons can go to their local Tropical Smoothie on that day and get a free smoothie!!!! They can also donate money to a great charity camp for kids with terminal or devastating illnesses called Camp Sunshine. So we celebrate this day early by designing our own flip flops using the Elements of Art! What an awesome way to review those important building blocks. They can also use an art style if they like. My students will be drawing their designs first on the iPad and then they can draw their favorite design on paper.
