I had this great idea for a community service project with my National Art
Honor Society. I have made arrangements to take them to the nearby
elementary school whose students will eventually attend our high school.
My ten NAHS students are going to teach an art lesson to the 4th grade art
club. The fourth grade teacher is really excited because there are no art
teachers at the elementary level in my district. I taught five years of
elementary art and have plenty of ideas, but now that its crunch time, I
can't seem to settle on anything.
I will have about an hour. She wants something that can be finished in
that time. My NAHS kids don't really want to "teach". They want to
assist. The 4th graders are studying immigration and they have done a few
projects related to different cultures.
I want to make this meaningful for everyone involved. Any suggestions?
