Pinwheels For Peace!

The pinwheels are everywhere!  650!

Theses pinwheels were done with Kindergarten and I incorporated a lesson on how to carry their artwork to the drying rack.  The students colored on the pinwheels using watercolor markers and then I sprayed them with "magic" water.  They have to carry the wet artwork to the drying rack with two hands so they don't drip.  The older students want to know why they can't spray theirs!

Unfortunately, we were not able to create our pinwheel art installation outside because of rain.  So we made it into an art performance!  We did two separate performances in the gym.  We sang part of the Beatles song, "Give Peace a Chance", read a couple of "Who will you make peace with?" writings, reviewed all of the things we had been learning about peace on the announcemnets in the morning, and talked about how to stop a bully!
