Do You Come from a Land Down Under?

Last week, the  MWF classes did a unit on Australia.  We learned Australia's location, about the equator, talked about the time difference and the Pacific Ocean.  We also did some Aboriginal art.  We did a group project, had some individual projects for the art center and one child did her own interpretation of Aboriginal art.

The group project-

A kangaroo is traced on tagboard for students.   First, students filled in the kangaroo.
Next, we added lines to the edge and outlined the tagboard.
Finally, we filled in with lots and lots of dots!

This year we added an activity.  At the easel in the art center, we had dot markers and markers for the children. We provided large paper with a kangaroo, lizard, sea turtle, dolphin or shark traced on to the paper.
 

 
 
 
 
 
Finally, one student was so inspired she created her own Aboriginal art!
