Think about Art. It is a personal experience for the child. Each end product is unique. The children have the time to think about what they want to do to their project, and how they will use the tools and materials to do it. Sometimes their work is related to the geography or other subjects they are learning about.
Painting egg carton cups for the whole class to use. Painting the
small cup and not your fingers requires concentration!
Making the earth with egg tray cups that the children painted blue
(water) and green (land).
Painting a stenciled map of North America blue and green.
Later the child will label some of the countries.
