youtube movies

I am a great fan of youtube movies. They are my first port of call when looking for information on a particular topic. This is one of my favourites for motivating spontaneous art work.

I suggested to teachers that they show this movie to children and then set up a wall that has a large piece of paper and black vivids available. Decide on a theme and then let the children create. The rules are anybody can draw and add to the picture. This is an activity that children can choose to go to. Here is an unfinished example from Philippa's junior classroom.
