Matisse Scissorhands: Henri, his cut-out phase and French vocabulary

Matisse Scissorhands: Henri, his cut-out phase and French vocabulary

Henri Matisse was a French artist who used colour dynamically and with passion. This lesson plan concentrates on his last artistic phase, cut-outs. Included in this pack are teacher's notes (background information, classroom activity and homework options), a powerpoint, homework options sheet, French vocabulary activity sheet and lastly a printable example sheet of shapes Matisse used. The cross-curricular themes are French and English. The lesson goes through colours in French and a few basic words that can be seen through Matisse's work. Within the homework options there is an option for an English writing assignment also. Due to copyright laws you will need to copy and paste three google images into the powerpoint. I have specified which cut-outs to use.

Blooms questioning dartboard

Blooms questioning dartboard

A great resource to utilise questioning in class. Add your own questions to the PowerPoint which has been linked to the colour coded slides. The learners should throw an object of your choosing (I use a suction ball or a paper ball) at one of the six colours. This will move the PowerPoint onto a question at varying levels of difficultly depending on which part of the target they hit.. A simple but effective starter or plenary. Note: Two versions have been included. One where challenging questions appear more frequently and one where lower order questions appear more frequently.
