TEACHING KIT PENNSYLVANIA ART
Pennsylvania has fostered rich artistic traditions for centuries. Beginning in the seventeenth century, colonists flocked to the city of Philadelphia, which became the political, intellectual, and cultural center of the American colonies, and to the surrounding regions, which offered a wealth of natural resources. The six objects featured in this teaching poster set, all in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, illustrate the lives and lifestyles of these early settlers. Their individual stories and our shared history come to life as we look closely at these remarkable works of art.
Great consideration was taken to select objects that would appeal to K-12 students of diverse backgrounds and serve as effective teaching resources for classroom teachers of all disciplines. It is our hope that this resource stimulates discussion, generates questions, and provides inspiration to you and your students.
This teaching poster set includes:
-A printed resource guide with activities, worksheets, a time line, bibliography and glossary
-A CD-ROM with digital versions of the images, two PowerPoint presentations on each object and a digital version of the resource guide.
-Six laminated 18" x 24" posters with an image on the front and information on the back.
