The kids were wonderful. I just threw out the idea of how we can live more
peaceful
lives and we did some role playing for certain situations. For instance the
problem of sharing always comes up - how can we share with each other - with
someone who is different etc. We role play different ages, sexes, etc. they
come up with some wonderful ideas and love to illustrate them. I then tie in
composition, perspective
(simple overlap and horizon line) etc. As I said it is sponsored by Martin
Luther
King Day - our poster that won first place in fourth grade showed the United
States
and Africa with arms reaching across the ocean to shake hands. Can;t remember
what the other second place winners were. Good luck with you ideas. Roberta
