Community, Connectedness, Creativity ...!
Grade 6 Clovers lately got the chance to work with Eltham Primary School in Australia. Trough poetry, Visual Art, and other texts, tools, and resources, students investigated the meaning of community and what connects them to their community. They explored their relationship to their surrounding and environment.
They took 10 photos in 10 days of images that represented this relationship and their own values.
|My students and I came up with the idea of decorating our bulletin board in class with the following "10 day photos" ;)|
Afterwards they sent these photos to the partner school in Australia through Wikispace and iEarn.
At the end of this project my students learned that sharing and communicating with students from other cultures enriches their knowledge of other countries' traditions, norms, and values.
"A picture is worth a thousand words!"
