Night Walk - project under construction!

Notes to Testers: 

- Optional Video (1 minute)  Classes may watch before starting project.  You can watch with your tester before too if you can.

- Optional Handout   Classes may provide.  You can share it with your tester if you want.  (warning -I did my best...someone may help beautify/improve it soon!)

- K-1 project page,  2-12 project page

- Email by Tues 9/21 with any feedback and pictures of the artwork :) I may use some for 'samples' or project ads!

Bonus Testing Supply Notes:

- Supplies Suggested:  black paper, white pencil or crayon, white paper, scissors, glue (or tape!), something to color with like colored pencils/crayons

BUT if you don't have black paper or white crayon, they can still do it if they can ask your tester to just draw a night scene on white paper with a pencil or dark colors...then for the flashlight section make it super colorful!  

Night Walk

Teacher Notes

Project Description:

It's totally dark out there and you can hardly see anything. However, a flashlight reveals a magical world so different from what we see during the day.  This project was inspired by the picture book, "Flashlight" by Lizi Boyd.   In it a child goes out at night with a flashlight and explores nature in the dark.  The video lesson shares pages from this book and why we don't see colors in the dark.   Students can then follow along to create the scene of a boy walking through the woods, but can vary it as they wish with their imaginations!  What will they find in their flashlight?  

Extra Teaching Notes:

Suggested 1 minute bonus video:

Flashlight by Lizi Boyd - Animated Trailer

Before teaching the project, you can watch this clip.  It brings the book to life! 

K-1 Note:

If cutting the light beam is too difficult, you may use pre-cut white paper.  

Supply Notes:   

* Optional Handout is available.  Chairs/Docents may supply.

* Some schools may be providing light Prismacolor pencils to be used for the white pencils.
