Grade One has been busy working on the transdisciplinary theme Sharing the Planet, where their inquiry took them to understanding the importance of the Earth's resources. They looked at the glass making process in detail, beginning with sand. They were fascinated to learn that sand can turn into smooth glass.
Before going any further, Grade One got creative and made beautiful sand art paintings. They appreciated the beauty of this natural resource and created their own landscapes.
From looking at sand, students focussed on the process of glass blowing and colouring. They then used colourful glass mosaic tiles to make delicate Mother Day's gifts.
