I teach in a Title 1 school in Cambridge, MA, grades Pre-K - 5. This amazing schools is project based learning which allows students to learn through a variety of mediums on specific topic My 4th graders this year are diving into a curriculum focusing on art around the world. Students have been exploring each content. Learning about the language, religion, various cultural practices, and of course the art from various regions. We will soon be learning about art from Asia, specifically South East Asian Countries, China, and Japan.
The use of the Gyotaku Fish printing kit will be an experience my 4th graders will never forget. My students have been diving into the curriculum this year, exploring art from around the world. I want to be able to keep that going and bring a cultural experience that my students may not experience again.
Every week, my students run into my room ready to be immersed in something new.
They were able to learn about various west African tribes, and we created masks to further push out learning about them. My students also dove into Native American history, and looked at the affects of war and other social issues greatly at the Native American community across the US. They then created medicine shield that represented and brought power to them in battle. And Now I want to continue that learning and bring an unforgettable lesson again to them.
