|A 3rd grade lesson plan on "Seeing Near and Far": students learn how overlapping and size differences show perspective, and that on a level surface, the lowest part of a near subject is lower in a picture than the lowest part of a farther subject, recognizing which objects in a picture are near and which are far. This is an introduction of the concept of the illusion of depth on a two-dimensional surface.|
