LTTA @ Nestor Falls

I've been working with the "Learning Through The Arts (LTTA) program for just over a year, now. It's been a great experience and I'm now working with the small school in Nestor Falls, Ontario. It's a great little schoolhouse with great kids.

The K-3 class is working, here, on land, water and animal thingies to be a backdrop/background for a prehistoric "native" village that will begin to be shared and settled by the "pioneers" (Social Studies).

The 4-8 class laid out and measured lines, then painted them in the snow to create two large "house" drawings (and two suns). We'll be using the measurements to explore Area of squares, rectangles and circles. It's hard to see in these pics, but there's grass and flowers painted in the snow, as well.
