Read the following scenarios. Decide which (if any) of these situations reflect appropriate art set-up techniques for activities discussed in this unit, and then answer the questions that follow.
In a preschool class, Dory and Sammy have been building robots in the block area, so the teacher adds boxes, foil, wire, and a bucket of small, old radio parts to the area.
Now that the weather is nice, a kindergarten teacher places the sand table just outside the door, which is next to the art area. The teacher explains new rules set up to stop the traffic flow going across the art area to and from the sand table.
After a field trip to a grocery store, first grade teachers add empty food cartons and labels to the pasting and construction area.
The teacher concludes that the children are not using the clay modeling area enough. She replaces it with another computer station.
