...Oh, But What If You Fly?
Stepping out of our 'comfort zone' can be challenging; sometimes we focus on the bad things that might happen instead of the good. The '...Oh, But What If You Fly?' lesson pack contains a lesson plan, audio story-lines, a pupil worksheet and accompanying templates to facilitate a lesson that helps children to develop their individual creativity, while recognising the importance of working with others.
…Oh, But What If You Fly? is a lesson designed to demonstrate how every pupil is unique and has the ability to be creative individually, but something very special can be created if the whole class works together!
- Develop their own creative style by selecting their own materials and methods to experiment with.
- Understand the properties of line and shape through ‘Zentangle art’.
- Develop the skill of artistic commentary.
