Students will examine the artistic characteristics of Summer; explain why Arcimboldo’s paintings were received with fascination, laughter, and admiration when given as gifts to other courts; and write a newspaper article detailing an event during which one of Arcimboldo’s paintings was given to a royal leader.
The main document includes a brief letter and a detailed set of lesson plans for the aforementioned topic/theme. I have written it with 3rd Grade to 8th Grade in mind. As requested by a downloader, I have now added a ppt containing a number of useful diagrams and pictures.
A set of images drawn from the history of art, as found in Sister Wendy Beckett's (1995) A Child&'s Book of Prayer in Art - a book now somewhat difficult to acquire. \n\nAccompanied by a set of &';matching words' and further discussion points, I&'ve shown these paintings to pupils age 8-16 in both mainstream and SEBD settings. Children and young people always responded very positively to the them and the discussions and were always keen to have more lessons involving images drawn from art history.

Griswold v. Connecticut (1965)<br />
Contraception and Privacy <br />
Should people be allowed access to drugs or devices designed to stop contraception, and thus be able to engage in sex without having to worry as much about pregnancy? <br />
There have been many laws in the United States which prohibited the manufacture, distribution, transportation, or advertisement of such drugs and device. <br />
Those laws were challenged and the most successful line or argument stated that such laws interfered with a sphere of privacy which belonged to the individual. <br />
Facts of the Case:<br />
Estelle Griswold was the Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood League of Connecticut. Both she and the Medical Director for the League (Dr. Buxton) gave information, instruction, and other medical advice to married couples concerning birth control. Griswold and her colleague were convicted under a Connecticut law which criminalized the provision of counseling, and other medical treatment, to married persons for purposes of preventing conception and fined $100. A state appellate court and the Connecticut Supreme Court of Errors affirmed the convictions, whereupon defendants appealed to the U.S Supreme Court.<br />
Connecticut prohibited the use of drugs or instruments to prevent conception, and the giving of assistance or counsel in their use. The laws in question had been enacted in 1879 (and originally written by P.T. Barnum, of circus fame): <br />
Any person who uses any drug, medicinal article or instrument for the purpose of preventing conception shall be fined not less than fifty dollars or imprisoned not less than sixty days nor more than one year or be both fined and imprisoned. <br />
Does the Constitution protect the right of marital privacy against state restrictions on a couple's ability to be counseled in the use of contraceptives?<br />
Read the Bill of Rights, are there any amendments that apply to this case? Explain.<br />
