Dome Art Project

It's the summer holidays and, like many teachers, I am mulling over creative ideas for my 2015 class. I have been thinking back to an art project I did a few years ago with Year 1 and 2 students in Wellington, NZ. We created a geodesic dome for our classroom, which the whole class could fit into, and was used as a special place to read, play, or rest.

I am wondering about creating another version of this with my new class. It was a challenge, but provided the students with a total integration of curriculum areas in a very hands on, and creative way.

Santa's Cookies

At the end of 2014, one of my lovely students and his mum gave me a jar of ingredients for "Santa's Cookies." It was such a creative and thoughtful gift. Here's how they turned out!
