The Best Day-Inspired by Eric Carle~I made my silhouette with pieces from the Philadelphia Inquirer that I painted on with acrylics, then cut out and collaged onto a sketchbook page. The image is supposed to represent Game 5 at the World Series last year, that's about where we were standing. I looked off of several pictures from games I had gone to to sketch out the image I wanted. Then, I changed the sky to a sunset because it shows off the skyline that you can see from the ballpark better.
My idea for the lesson plan is to have students think about a time that they felt at home, and happy. Then create that image using collage techniques, magazines or newspapers that illustrate that time.
