This simple lesson activity gives instructions for making a Victorian "cornucopia" Christmas ornament filled with candy or other treats. This Victorian tradition dates back to the 19th century. The printable pattern is included. See more Victorian Christmas activities on the TeachersFirst Victorian Christmas page.

tag(s): christmas (64), victorian (21)

In the Classroom

Try this easy activity during a Christmas 'Round the World unit or as part of a study of the Victorian Era. Have students take digital pictures of the steps and include them on your class web page or wiki (with captions!) so others can try the activity at home. Make cornucopias as gifts for a visit to a local nursing home or children's home so the activity becomes a service project.

Give students a taste of the Victorian celebration with this site showing greeting cards from the Victorian era, and explaining the Victorian origins of many of today's Christmas traditions. We wish the images were bigger, but this is a nicely designed introduction to Victorian celebrations.

In the Classroom

Use this website during a unit on Christmas or Victorian history. Consider having students create their own online Victorian "albums" using a tool such as Mix Book (reviewed here).

The San Diego Museum of Art offers this online gallery of art collections, that can searched by subject, artist, collection or encyclopedia. Each painting is accompanied by a short text that provides more information on the artist, movement and the painting itself. Excellent site to tie art history into social history. Searching through the encyclopedia section allows the user to find movements in history, such as the Counter-Reformation, and art that reflects upon it.

tag(s): artists (75)

In the Classroom

Use this website on an interactive whiteboard or projector as an accompaniment for a history lesson. Look up a history topic your class is working on, and show them the images on the interactive whiteboard or projector to show how art reflects upon society. List the site on your Teacher Web page to allow students to access it in and out of the classroom, as it can also be used for a good starting point for History research papers.

Kodak has created a site that lets users upload their own pictures, then alter them with a variety of electronic effects. Users can also experiment with photos found elsewhere on the web. The site also has pointers on photography, composition, and photographic technique. Good site to show how image manipulation has changed the role of photography.

This is an elegantly-presented collection of royalty-free art images which are copyright-free when used for instructional purposes. The site is broadly divided into time periods, and there are thumbnails for each image. Clicking on a thumbnail will bring up the image in several size options. Wonderful resource for art history or lessons dealing with comparative art styles.

The images on this site are of amazing quality, and easy to download - making them perfect to use in your classroom. Images would make great supplements to any lecture or presentation, and are of good enough quality that bringing them up on the interactive whiteboard or projector wont pixilate or stretch them out beyond use.

Use the URL link or embed code to add your Fotobabble where you see fit. How easy is it? Upload your picture (you can choose whether it is public or remains private.) Add your voice and review quality. Share by clicking on the option you require or copy the embed code or URL to share.

In the Classroom

Users need to be able to locate and upload pictures. Use an attached or internal microphone to add voice to the picture. Manage the final product by email, adding to the vast array of services listed, or using the embed code.

Consider the use of a class account that is shared by all instead of using individual accounts.

Be sure that students understand to use appropriate and copyright free pictures. Check with your district policies about using pictures of or by students as well as using this service.

Use in any curriculum area. Use to show and tell about a favorite animal, historical figure, place, or event, artists or musicians, scientists or technologies, characters from fiction, or how to play a specific sport (as told by the ball!) to name a few. Take pictures during a science demo and have students upload and speak as the science concept - or as Sir Isaac Newton or Louis Pasteur! Have students write stories and upload a photo of their story's setting, reading their story aloud as viewers take in the setting. Try different options of storytelling: first person as an inanimate object, flashback, etc. Art teachers can have students upload a photo of recent artworks and narrate their technique or thoughts in creating the work. Speech/language teachers and ESL/ELL teachers will find that photos can promote oral language practice (and preserve a recording to demonstrate progress). A picture can SPEAK a thousand (or more) words!
