2015 Schools Competition - Nature Craft Entrants
Edgeworth Childcare Centre Inc - NSW
Year 6Teacher: Alison Johnson
1) Educators sourced the timber coffee table tops from markets and garage sales for a low cost (no more than $5.00 each).
2) A note was sent home to all families asking if they were out and about with their children at the park, beach, bush or backyard could they collect a few small things from nature to bring in to use on our collage, also asking not to take too much and to not take anything the animals might need. Educators also contributed to providing natural resources for the collage.
3) We used glue and brushes to attach the collage material.
4)We started our collages on Monday 20th July so every child could contribute to our creations through the week culminating in the finished product on Friday 24th July, Schools Tree Day.
4)We allowed the finished collages to dry over the following weekend and then proudly hung them on our fence for display.
