Parody of American Gothic-- 3rd/4th grade


For this lesson, we learned about the artist Grant Wood and his painting "American Gothic."  The kids read a magazine article about this painting (It was from the 90's and I think from the New Yorker).  The students discussed what a parody is and saw many examples of parodies of this iconic painting.  Then, the students drew their own version of the "American Gothic". 





I highly recommend this series of books!

I also like that series of books. I've used them with my Kindergarteners, though I don't read all of it to them. It's really good kid language while still giving good information.
