Students will collaborate in small groups to brainstorm an idea for a party outfit designed from party materials. Students will work together to assemble their party outfit for one of their groups' members to model. Students will create a party outfit using only party supplies and decorations.
This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.
Students will collect recyclable materials from around the school's campus and create artwork depicting a landform. The students will create a model of a physical feature of Earth such as mountains, valleys, plains, deserts, lakes, rivers, or oceans. This learning activity should be used at the end of a unit on Earth's systems.
The teacher will begin the activity with a read-aloud of A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle. Next, the teacher will allow students to use the illustrations in the picture book to describe the plot of the story. Then, the teacher will lead students on a "nature walk" around the school to collect items to create an imaginary house. Lastly, the students will design an imaginary home using the natural objects found on their walk while individually following sequential steps.
