We LOVE art! Our school does two to three school wide art projects a year that are multiage groups. This includes an Art Walk for the families and community. We did the following: read several books about Earth Day, Recycling,Reusing and Reducing. Then, we brainstormed as a group what can be done in each of these categories. Students also had the opportunity to make an Earth with the rethink, reduce, reuse and recycle arrows, Earth Day pop art and reading and writing about all of the above topics.
We chose to participate in this activity because we knew our students would love it, they would see how we can create art for many to see about reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink. It was a way to get involved in activities outside of our daily curriculum.
