    This is a really engaging picture to use with young students who are learning about past tense verbs. The colors are vibrant and the action is jumping off the page. I can hear the students discussing which person they would be in the painting!

    What a nice lesson for students to use for past tense verbs. It could easily be adapted for other age group students as well. I hope you will post some of the students’ work/writing another time. How do you think this lesson ties into critical thinking? Shelley

    The artwork you chose is so dynamic, so colorful, so full of action! I can see using “The Circus” for Art Thinking activities as well as writing activities.. I am going to have the students outline the elements of plot for a short story as a prewriting activity… Can’t wait to see the various stories they come up with!

  4. I love the way you introduced the elements of art to your students with such a striking picture. The questions you pose really make your students look at the picture with “artist’s eyes” which help them look beyond color and shape.
