Although I wish I came up with every lesson plan I've ever taught, the truth is there are waaayyy too many fabulous art teachers who've made fabulous art lessons before me! This lesson was inspired by Cassie Stephens, from Nashville.... a true art teacher, extraordinaire!
Using the book, First Book of Sushi, by Amy Wilson Sanger, my students took a look at different types of Sushi, and different ingredients used.
Then the fun happened....
K-1 made fabulous flat bento boxes, while the upper grades made a origami bento box and added more 3-dimensional elements, which looked super in our Blossomwood Art Gallery!
