Painting a Picture of Science
Fox, Lisa
Primary Science, n153 p25-27 May 2018
In this article, trainee teacher, Lisa Fox, outlines some of her successful activities pulling science and art together while on her teaching practice. The activities were planned for nursery-age children through Grade 6. The purpose was to show that all ages can develop phase-related science knowledge and explore and demonstrate this through art. The following activities are described with corresponding age groups: (1) painting with ice (ages 3-5); (2) oil and watercolour paintings (ages 5-7); (3) painting with light (ages 7-9); and (4) chromatography (ages 9-11).
