This 122 page art unit is a great set of art activities to integrate into the classroom and can be completed throughout the year, as an entire week long unit of study at the end of the year, for summer school, or for enrichment programs. If you’d like to use it as an end of the year unit, I have a suggested daily schedule with each day including at least one reading activity, one writing, one math, one science or social studies lesson, and one art lesson.
