Lesson 5

1.30-2.30

History:  To be able to understand how the British landscape changed during the Industrial Revolution You will be working on identifying how Britain and its landscape changed from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution to the end of it. Look at some comparative models, beginning to identify how Britain went from a predominantly agricultural population to an urban population.

 

Use the maps provided of Britain before the Industrial Revolution and a map of Britain post Industrial Revolution. Use the key and comparison table to compare the two periods e.g. looking how many railway lines there were before and after, looking at populations in a particular area before and after.

Friday No Screen day!

Art project- Make Your Own Pointillism Painting!

What you will need:

·       Pencil to make a sketch with.

·       Paint.

·       Surface to paint on: stretched canvas, canvas board, cardboard or heavy paper.  Maybe even a cut out back of a cereal box!

·       Something to squeeze paint out on: a paper plate, a regular plate, a paint palette, or a recycled Styrofoam tray.

·       Cotton Swabs (buds) to make paint dots with- one for every colour you’re using!

Steps to create your painting:

1.    Start out by thinking of the subject you would like to draw.  You can draw anything you like: nature scene, portrait, flowers, animals, a beautiful sunset, a still life, and so much more.

2.    Then sketch it out on your paper or canvas.

3.    Squeeze a little bit of each colour that you think you will need.

4.    Use cotton swabs to paint in your sketch.  Don’t mix the colours!  For example, if you need to make a purple car, use blue and red dots to paint that car in.  If you need lighter green and darker green, use green and yellow or white dots for the lighter area, and green and black or brown dots for the darker area.  Play around with colours and have fun!

Here are some paintings:
