I volunteered to teach art to K-6th grade at a small private school. Here's OUR story.

Positive Negative Notan
In this lesson I had the kids experimenting with positive and negative shapes. In Japan this is called Notan, and you typically start with single square of black paper. Every shape that you cut out, you flip and mirror it outwards, so it can get quite complicated. It teaches the kids about shape, as well as positive and negative shapes.
