Here's what I left:
Step 1: Introduce yourself to the class. Read the following poem and discuss YOUR expectations, by having students list how they should behave in art when Mrs. Mitchell IS here.
Take a ride with me,
On the art submarine sandwich.
We will pile it high, nearly to the sky.
I wonder what we will eat on the art submarine!?
You must be wondering about Mrs. Mitchell,
I can only tell you that she must be ill
But today is the day
that we will play
With the idea of an art submarine sandwich.
Just close your eyes, I'm sure you can imagine
A sandwich where anything can happen
The wonderous site that is
A hogie bun overflowing
In a rainbow of colors
Full of your favorite foods and others
"You are just a sub," they say,
"Only Mrs. Mitchell can show us the way!"
But class have no fear
the challenge is clear,
Today we must design
(by coloring and drawing with lines)
The most amazing art submarine
that Mrs. Mitchell has ever seen.
Ask students: If you were making an ART submarine sandwich, piled high with toppings, what might you put on it? (Ex: food, art supplies, tools, animals, candy) You can make it silly!
Use the a posted images of submarine sandwiches to have students draw an ‘art’ submarine on white paper. Students should also draw the top and bottom bun first, and then add ‘food’ in layers between the buns. Students should draw their submarine with pencils, trace over it with sharpies, and then color it with crayons, markers or colored pencils.
Please collect the artwork and make sure students have their names on their papers. Stack each class on my desk with a label.
6X12 white paper
choice of crayons, markers or colored pencils
I was pleasantly surprised with many of the results. I wish a few of them would've added more details to fill in the white spaces between each food, but in some cases, the white areas work well as visual space between each item. I love the really silly ones. I was worried that some kids would rush through this, so I also purchased the Silly Sandwich sub plan on TPT and left the visuals on the board so that the sub could use them for additional instructional input.
