Global Climate Change 3rd Grade Science Garden

Global Climate Change

Awareness for the

21st Century

     I believe art is the vehicle for distributing knowledge to the world.    It is the pathway to understand the past, present and the future.  Our children here at Uniontown Elementary documented our amazing science garden as a sample of the earth’s  beauty.    They designed a composition based on plants, animals, fish, water, and reptiles.
      What if the earth changed? How can we as citizens, and habitants of this gorgeous planet help keep it healthy?   This discussion led us into global climate change.   The children looked at many artists who show the change taking place here on earth through their work.  One artist we discussed was Nele Azevedo,  who made an art installation in Berlin based on tiny ice sculpture figures to represent global warming.  Through the integration of science and history,  the children thought of new ways to make changes for our future.   We developed cause and affect watercolor paintings of our science garden.  What  if we stop caring about the place we live?   What would our science garden look like?
    The definition of landmarks: an event, discovery, or change marking an important stage or turning point in something.
   The artists took their learning to another level, and designed clay landmarks to symbolize the turning point for a healthy earth.  I was so amazed with the execution of their ideas into a 3- dimensional work of art!     With our talented children, for the future the world will left in good hands.
   The third grade art students at Uniontown Elementary now understand the relationships and concepts of global climate change across other disciplines through our curriculum.   This experience lays a foundation for a lifelong learner through our visual arts!
