5 Year olds.
There were a few new children in the class I hadn't met before, so very young children.
The class inquiry is 'Day / Night'.
Eric Carl's story "Papa please get the moon for me" is a perfect fit.
I took this lesson last year. papa-please-get-moon-for-me. I included many different medium and skills to create the art. I find it is important to let the children experience a variety of tools and skills early on. They build on their experience when we use them another day.
The striking results were an added bonus.
I asked the children to stand on the table and pretend to climb the curtain. I took their photos which they cut out and stuck on their little lolly stick ladder.
