3rd Grade - Album Covers
A new project for 3rd graders, but one we did last year with 5th graders. For the few weeks between Thanksgiving and winter break, the third graders pretended to be award-winning musicians designing their debut album cover. The goal was to get the album cover not only eye-catching, but also reflective of the type of music they would make. So, we studied a handful of album covers and talked about how we could tell one looked "country" or "pop," and used their ideas in our own album design. Each 3rd grader had to invent his or her own band name and album title, too. Check out a few awesome examples.
