“Red, yellow, and blue are great alone, but when you mix them you create something beautiful. This is how lasting friendships are formed. Two individuals coming together to create something beautiful -FRIENDSHIP” – Maribel Siems
Our current central idea is about tolerance of different characteristics supports people to interact with others and build friendships. Therefore, we conducted an activity where the students could work together and explore science in an artistic way. It is amazing to witness how one activity can stimulate five trans disciplinary skills.
- Social skills
Students learnt how to work together with their friends to create a beautiful artwork: friendship wreath. They placed their hands on one primary color and then held hands with their friends to create new color.
- Self-management skills
Students learnt to play safely, not to smear the surroundings and their friends.
- Thinking skills
Students thought of different colors they could make using those primary colors. They also
learnt how to make a certain color brighter or darker.
- Research skills
Students were curious to find out what color would come if they mixed certain colors.
- Communication skills
Students communicated to each other and to their teachers about the result of the color mixing.
At the end, they might not remember what the lesson was, but I believe they remember the joy they had when they learnt.
