For example: If you're not from Iqaluit, you don't know the inuksuks, you can't know the inuksuks. The inuksuks are made from rocks and stone. They can act as a landmark to help people find their way. The inuksuk is the symbol on the Nunavut flag. If you're not from Iqaluit, you don't know the inuksuks.
I had the class type their final draft on the computer and as an art assignment we created the picture that goes along with their work. Each time I used a different medium (water color pencils, water color paints, pencil crayons). These turned out fantastic! Then I put the book together and we read it as a class. Each student would smile from ear to ear when I would read their section of the book.
|This is two of our book covers. I just picked some of my students research images that they used for their art as decoration for the page.|
|This is the example we made as a class. I demonstrated the use of water color pencils and paints in this Inuksuk.|
|As a class we created this wordle (http://www.wordle.net/) with all of the things that are special about Iqaluit.|
|A students example of the snow bunting. I am so proud with how it turned out!|
I am really happy with how this project turned out, and I am thinking about other ways of incorporating this idea into different subjects.
