View the landscape from a new perspective, using your imagination to creatively paint objects as they would appear from a distance.
Organize students into small groups and take them outside to observe how telephone poles or trees recede into the distance. Discuss the visual effects of distance on objects. If possible, ask students to lie on the ground and look up. Climb to the top of a playground slide and look down. How does one's perspective change?
Ask students to imagine themselves as ants. What would the world look like to you? Imagine yourself next as a bird. Would houses and trees seem large or small to you from the sky?
