American Gothic-- Third Grade



This is a tried-and-true art teacher lesson plan.  The students enjoyed learning the story behind Grant Wood's American Gothic painting.  We read an article about his famous painting.
They also enjoyed seeing various parodies of this artwork.  They envisioned their own parody of this famous masterpiece.
  
You can also read this book about his artwork:

I had my 5th graders finish a similar project and it turned out really well.
