Amazing things Happening at Royal Roads

Royal Roads has a Virtual Art Museum created by Mrs. Captein and working with Grade 3 students. The grade 6/7 class learned how to make a similar virtual museum creating a Cree collection that could be found at the ROM in Toronto. It became a fun way to show off their knowledge! Here is a quick funny link to the Bitmoji Virtual Museum. Click on the picture below to take you for a quick tour!

Teachers in an Art Gallery

 

The Canadian Pioneers learned how to make corn husk dolls from some of the Indigenous people of Canada. 

Over the last few work periods in 3L in Social Studies, students learned how Pioneer and Indigenous children made their own toys from natural materials they found in their environment. (Walmart and Toys R Us did not exist!) There wasn't a book with step-by-step instructions on how to make them either. Children learned how to make the basic doll form from their mothers and used their imaginations/creativity to build the rest. We promoted experimenting with materials, letting the students know that the pioneer children probably had just as much fun building the "craft" as they did playing with it.
