Grade 5 students chose a part of the globe that they had a connection with. They then enlarged the map by using the grid method, colored it using watercolor pencils and burned the edges, which was probably the most exciting part of the project! Some comments:
Amal: “I didn’t know that people used candles in the old days and that’s why the edges of their maps got burnt.”
Carmen: “I learned a new way of drawing maps instead of just drawing it off the internet.”
Cici: “I learnt how to use a grid to enlarge a map.”
Ruhi: “I learnt about the continent I was born in. I enjoyed burning the edges.”
Ronnie: “Burning the edges was easier than I thought.”
Alhan: “Burning the map was really fun.”
Hakan: “I learned how to construct maps. I enjoyed burning the maps.”
For their unit on identities and who they are, Grade Two students have been making self-portraits They have been looking at themselves and trying to figure out where the eyes go and where the nose goes. What color are my eyes and what color is my hair? Is my hair curly or straight? These are all the questions we have been asking ourselves as we draw our faces.

Grade Three students have been looking at “Understanding the Art World.” During this unit we are studying the work of the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. His use of color to create movement was something that we tried to copy while creating our masterpieces.
