I have had a 2nd. and 6th. grade teacher ask me for ideas to present a
lesson on fractions using art that they could do with their classes
combined. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
Also, here's another of my favorite lessons: I have hung floor to
ceiling butcher roll paper (dark blue) to create a room inside my room.
In this enclosed area I have a CD playing of hunderstorms and rain. The
children come in and I have newspaper available, no scissors or other
supplies. They listen to the rain, I flash the lights on and off to
simulate lightning. After quietly absorbing the effects they are asked
without talking to communicate with others (teams of 2-3) or alone
create something they would do in the rain (they mime playing games like
baseball, make rain gear out of the newspaper, make origami boats, rain
hats, etc). Fun project to integrate with their unit on weather.
elementary level. Ruth
