Re: teaching kids peace through art

The kids were wonderful. I just threw out the idea of how we can live more
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
King Day - our poster that won first place in fourth grade showed the United
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
