Colour and Nature: Summative Blog

For our summative project, each child received a canvas and was asked to identify something in nature they would like to paint. The children had to identify the colours needed for their painting. Using only the primary colours as well as black and white, the children created their colours.
William: This is the ocean.  A squid is trying to attack a crocodile. 
Tyreese: This is a forest. There are trees and flowers.

Ryleigh: This is underwater at the beach. The sand is black from the water.
There is a fish, a starfish and seaweed.

Chloe: This pony is at the playground. He will go to the forest after.

Michael: This is tree in the forest.

Bela: This is rain falling on trees in the forest.

Sofia: This is a castle in the forest. The castle is made out of nature stuff.

Keira: This is a beach.  There is sand, rocks, logs and water. The sky is red.

Verdi: Catapults

Verdi, a young python, does not want to change.  The last thing he wants his to turn from his beautiful yellow to boring green. Verdi tries to change his colour back to yellow by scrubbing his skin and then covering it with mud. Nothing works.  He notices that the sky is bright yellow just like he used to be. Verdi launches himself from the treetops certain that his flight will change him back to yellow.



How did Verdi fly through the air? What a great opportunity to learn about catapults. Elastics and popsicle sticks were the only materials need to build a catapult.  First the children, used plastic snakes to sail through the area.  It was delightful to hear the excitement and the laughter as the children made  their "Verdi" fly.




I asked the children which would travel farther; a plastic snake or a pompom.  Most of the children though the heavier item, the snake, would travel a further distance.  The children were amazed at how far and how high a pompom could move.
