Unlikely Pairs by Bob Raczka

Recommended Grades: 3-5

In Unlikely Pairs, Bob Raczka offers us an exhibit like no other, organized solely for fun.  He matches paintings that ordinarily would not be paired in an art museum. 

Lesson Idea:  


Writers Workshop: Since Unlikely Pairs (Bob Raczka’s Art Adventures) is a wordless book (aside from the names and dates of the paintings), show the pairs of paintings to students.  Compare the paintings and determine why Raczka may have paired them.  Analyzing the paintings will help students become better critical thinkers.  After students have analyzed the paintings, ask them to write about what they see going on in the paintings.
