Jasper Johns

5th graders really loved this Pop Art lesson on Jasper Johns!  The idea came from the book, Make it POP by Joyce Raimondo, we found some 12x18 maps (thanks first grade!) and traced the states.  Students were encouraged to use their own ideas to make their map unique.  In my research,  I  learned that Johns was awarded the Presidential Medal of Honor by President Obama.  He is the first studio artist in 34 years to receive the nation's highest civilian honor.

Gotta love the oil spill!

I think our social studies teacher was happy with
them too!
