This lesson has been a recurring art lesson for my 3rd graders for the past 5 years and it has been a hit every year!
I start with presenting Matryoshka Dolls and Russia to my students. We look at different examples of Nesting Dolls and look at the similarities between the dolls.
Students choose a theme for their dolls and use tracers to get the right size for each doll. They starts with only 4 dolls but if they finish early they may add 2 more.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
