Research a coastal community, profiling physical, cultural, and other characteristics.
During a study of life along the coast, student groups research an established coastal community. Gather information about the village, town, or city. Locate it on a map; find out about its physical geography, cultural climate, and typical architecture. Groups organize their research.
Ask students to make two lists with Crayola® Washable Markers. First, imagine what you might see (natural and manufactured things) in the water if you looked out from the land. Then list what you might see on the land when looking from the water. What building styles and visible clues to cultural characteristics are evident?
With Crayola® Oil Pastels, make a detailed drawing of the coastal community selected. Begin by dividing the drawing paper for land and water. Blend pastels by rubbing with a fingertip or paper towel. Add details by using pastel over pastel.
Groups write a paragraph to accompany their artwork. Their writing should reflect research the group gathered about their selected coastal community. Post artwork and writing in a prominent place in the classroom.
