Projects and learning situations provide a way allow children to draw from their world of play and their life experience. These are purposeful, meaningful, and challenging situations and they engage all aspects of learning: psychomotor, emotional, social, language, cognitive and methodological.  

How do Colours Express Your Feelings?

In this learning situation, students will first learn about different kinds of feelings. They will explore primary and secondary colours and then learn about warm and cool colours. They will learn how artists use colours to express their feelings or a mood.  Finally, they will create their own art work then plan and implement an art exhibition.
