Vikings: Design a T-Shirt & Explanation Text

Vikings: Design a T-Shirt & Explanation Text

Children will look at different symbols important to the Vikings and will design a tshirt including the symbols. They will then write an explanation text that describes the different symbols included as well as the reasons for the design choices. In the past, this unit has worked really well at the end of a Viking study, where the children can show off what they’ve learned. This unit can be used alongside other Vikings packs, including Vikings: Monastery Invasion Narrative Text; Vikings: Monastery Invasion Persuasive Text (trade vs. plunder; Vikings: Trade vs. Plunder; and Viking: Battle Modifications with littleBits.

Cartooning: Drawing the face and figure

Cartooning: Drawing the face and figure

This is a project designed to introduce face and figure drawing to KS3 students in a way which makes it more manageable and engaging. It provides students with some useful rules and background knowledge for drawing the face and figure which they could just use to create their own caricatures or use as the basis to go on and practice figure drawing from observation. The project include reference to illustrators from Marvel, DC Comics, Jamie Hewlett and Kazou Koike as well as an analysis of Roy Lichtenstein's visual language.
