This elegantly designed site illustrates the importance of balance, contrast, movement, and proportion to a work of art. Part tutorial, part interactive tool, the site features a "make your own masterpiece" option in which students can select a background, add resizable subjects, and submit for critique. Includes an excellent Teacher Guide that provides interdisciplinary connections.

The Oakland Museum offers this collection of "untold stories" about the gold rush in California. The site includes lesson plans linked to California standards, sections on art; natives and immigrants; and more. Lots of possibilities if you're in California, and a great addition to a unit on westward exploration for others.

Before turning your students loose in the art room, give them some virtual hands-on experience with this outstanding online art studio. The most impressive feature on the site is the "pot throw," which actively involves students in each step of the artistic process. Mistakes and misjudgments are allowed, and help is always one mouse click away. After forming the pot, students can glaze it, place it in the kiln, set the temperature, and await their finished creation. Instructions for creating a coil pot and slab self-portrait are also included. Just for fun, students can try out the interactive "Build a Face Jug" activity.

Improve writing skills while tapping into art and critical thinking skills. This lesson plan takes students to virtual art galleries, guides them through a brainstorming exercise, then challenges them to analyze character, setting, situation, and vocabulary, before creating an original story. A nice activity for exploring connections between images and words, and learning characteristics of narrative writing.

You'll be enlightened, amazed, and even mystified by this eclectic collection of online museums that tout the bizarre, the practical, and the mundane. Interspersed among the "traditional' exhibits featuring the likes of Van Gogh and Ansel Adams are those covering a dizzying array of interests and obsessions. Check out the Gallery of Stove Burners, Ephemera Now, or the Museum of Norwegian Manhole Covers (we're not kidding). In addition to making some interesting cultural statements, the exhibits provide great ideas and insights for art and photography students.

tag(s): artists (76), inventors and inventions (95), museums (50), trivia (18)

In the Classroom

Select a display that fits your classroom needs and share it on the interactive whiteboard or projector. A lot of the art displays based on the site focus on creativity and the ingenuous of design, easily motivating students to create their own original art pieces.

Secondary students can use this interactive tool to experiment with the color, space, and visual rhythm characteristic of Piet Mondrian's work. Start with one solid block, then follow basic instructions to create horizontal and vertical divisions. Each rectangle can be easily resized or re-colored. A few simple mouse clicks will yield impressive results.

J.K. Rowling's site is a welcome change from the standard publisher's fare, offering an assortment of Harry Potter trivia and many interesting facts about how the stories came to be and have evolved. While it's not strictly instructional, this one would be a great source of facts for a Harry Potter webquest.

This extensive source, designed especially for elementary and middle school students, provides excellent information about the ancient cultures of the Near East, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. An additional section explores 19th - 20th century sub-Saharan Africa. Images of museum artifacts from each region are liberally distributed throughout the site, along with some interactive maps, occasional videos, and games. The Teacher Resource section provides lesson plans (aligned to national standards), suggestions for integrating art into the social studies curriculum, and helpful tips on using the site.

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lesson plans offered on this site! This site could also be used as a learning center or station during a unit on Ancient Civilizations. Because there is a lot of content, we recommend creating a guide or follow along for students to accompany the site. For help creating graphic organizers, try Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

Visitors can actually control the passage of time - speed it up or slow it down - and view the coming of spring, the evolution of the continents, or the incredible functions of the human eye. Follow the Activities link to find some visually challenging interactive activities. This site would be an engaging addition to a life science or art lesson. Use the activities to encourage creative problem solving, or select one of the video images to use as a creative writing prompt.

Art, Literature, U.S. History - Works by some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century are represented in this massive collection of powerful images documenting memorable events in American politics and culture. Project selected photos in class to introduce an event in history, inspire student photographers, or introduce a writing prompt. The sight is searchable and quite user-friendly. A fee is required to download images.

tag(s): photography (162)

In the Classroom

Use the photos found in this site for writing prompts. Search within the site or browse the subjects offered to find one that corresponds to a unit being studied. A good example would be the images taken of the Great Depression. Pull up a select few of the images and prompt students to tell the story of what is happening in the image, the emotions seen, and what kind of impact this is meant to have of the viewer. An activity like this does require some background knowledge so this might better suited towards the end of a unit as review. This site would benefit teachers of nearly any subject, especially history, language arts, civics and science.

Left and right brain functions come together in this interactive site that takes a look at the art behind investigative police work. A brief introduction, explaining the role of each side of the brain, is followed by a series of assignments that require students to use their visual vocabulary to help solve a case. As art and forensic science come together, students begin to realize that visual images can be more effective than words in describing something. Check out the Teacher's Guide for a list of learning outcomes and helpful tips.

tag(s): forensics (27)

In the Classroom

Use this website as a paired activity, or learning center during a lesson on the right and left brain. Have students complete the activity & along the way, chart the difference between right and left brain using a venn diagram. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).
