BIG congratulations to the Grade 6s and Mme Caudarella from École Edward Johnson who participated in a Global Project called Art Miles Japan this year. It is coordinated through the International Education and Resource Network (iEARN.org) and is a fabulous way for students to have a global learning experience. A teacher is matched with a class from Japan and the classes begin by introducing themselves in the iEARN online forum and through videos that they create. The two classes then decide on a theme for a mural; in this case it was around the local culture and nature evident in our two countries.
The class from Japan begins the first half of the mural painting, and, once complete, sends it to the class in Canada to finish, which we shared earlier here. What a great opportunity for students to research, collaborate, design, and be creative with a classroom from across the world! Mme Caudarella’s class received the half-finished mural from Japan in January and sent it back just before March Break. Thanks so much to our partner class from Japan for this wonderful collaboration! 🙂
Here are some pictures of the class working on and celebrating the finished mural:
