Published on

Grant Wood’s painting, The American Gothic (1930) is an iconic image of the 20th Century. It was inspired by a gothic revival house in rural Eldon, Iowa and painted as a tribute to hard working people during a difficult time in America’s history.

This painting is a wonderful way to introduce social studies topics such as the life of rural America during the Great Depression, inspire language arts lessons as students look closely at this detailed piece of art for clues about the characters and their lifestyles, and learn art concepts as students consider the composition and structure of the painting.

This kit will guide you through a series of activities full of digital media to enrich, enhance, and engage students. Each activity helps students make new discoveries about life in America as they explore the American Gothic.
