Description

In this lesson plan, students will learn how to create a Salvadorian craft known as "Seed of God" or "Semilla de Dios", which is a folk art style that utilizes bright colors and is inspired by adobe homes. Students will get the opportunity to practice this folk art style after learning about it, either creating a cross similar to the one they are shown or by coloring in sheets with images similar to those panted onto crosses.
