Ode to Food

This post is a bit late as this lesson is from a few months back when all the Thanksgiving / holiday cooking was going on. Second graders were introduced to Pop art, looking specifically at Andy Warhol and Wayne Thiebaud. They learned that art could be about everyday objects like food. They then chose their own favorite foods and drew them using oil pastels to blend and mix their colors. Students finished the lesson by writing an ode to celebrate their food and then read their poems aloud to the class. We had a lot of fun with this one and it certainly made us all very hungry! Enjoy!
