The purpose of this lesson is not to teach students how to use the PowerPoint program, but to use their prior knowledge of this program to add to an art history lesson, and to create an interactive, fun way for students to work with information on famous artists!!
Using Microsoft PowerPoint students will create individual fact cards based on a famous artist from the past or present. The Fact card will allow students to display an example of the artist’s work, and information discovered during research of that artist. This is a fun and interactive way for students to become more familiar with a masterpiece and its maker. The student’s fact cards can be put together to create a resource book of famous artists as well as a slide show for all to view.
