Emily thinks that she must find something "special" for Show and Tell.
She learns that sometimes the best things in life are right under
for the activity by posting reproductions of interesting pieces of
artwork around the room. These might include posters and photographs
from magazines as well as the child's or group's own work. Include
a variety of art forms, such as sculpture, watercolor painting, and
Invite the child to take a "Museum Walk" around the room with you.
Point out the artwork on display and invite responses. When appropriate,
tell the story behind each work: its title, the artist, what it represents,
and any other information that makes it special. When you come to
the child's own work, invite the artist to be the "Museum Docent"
and explain the work of art.
With a Group:
Post the work a day or two before the Museum Walk, so that the children
have a chance to develop their responses over time.
