Year 3 wonders ‘What is art?’

Posted: February 13, 2015

To kick-start the new unit of inquiry ‘How we express ourselves’, the Year 3 students brought in a range of artifacts to stimulate their thinking and answer the question ‘What is art?’ The range of exhibits to which the children were exposed was vast. Pictures, sculptures, sports objects, architecture, bike tricks, breakdancing and ballet were some of the different things that the students needed to think about. The students were also given a musical demonstration from flautist Linda Stuckey, a DC parent and member of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. Let’s see if their thinking changes over the course of the unit.
