PYP Unit 1: Sharing the Plant (Peace and Conflict)
Central Idea: Seeking peaceful solutions to conflict helps us to get along better.
Grade level: 1st Grade (5-6 year olds)
Media: painting, drawing
Elements of Art: line, shape, colour
Grade 1 students decided that a good way to remind themselves and other students at our school to play in a peaceful way was to create our own Peace Symbols. This required a lot deep thinking. We observed symbols around us, drew symbols we knew before creating our own set of peace symbols.
Finally we chose our two favourite symbols and drew them on double sided coloured construction paper. We added details using oil crayons and watercolour paint.Lastly we laminated these and hung them up in our playgrounds at school to be a visual reminder for the whole year.
