Classroom Feature: Chickadees


Each week we'll feature glimpses into what happens in and out of our classrooms here at school! These will include lessons, activities, centers, and saunters from both our day school and Kids Niche programs.

Today's feature: Chickadee's Loose Parts Art

We have been using a variety of natural and human made materials to create our own works of art including keys, jewels, pine cones, and shells.  Some kids have enjoyed creating patterns, representational pictures, or messy art with the objects.  This activity helps expand the kids' thinking about art and what can be used to create art.  

Learning objectives:

  • Experiment with a variety of art materials and develop increasing ability to use art materials.
  • Use different colors, surface textures, and shapes to create form and meaning.
