This week's theme at Art World School is all about bugs, insects and the rainforest! We're exploring arthropods and their behaviors in their respective environments. So far we've explored the intricacies of the Blue Morpho Butterfly and their deceptive blue wings that are actually red but reflect light to make it look blue. In addition, students have also recreated the Spicebush Swallowtail Caterpillar, a tiny caterpillar that disguises itself as a snake to ward off predators. Many students have also had a lot of fun making Flying Snakes out of paper and using them as scarves. Students have also had a fun time doing bug themed yoga poses such as ladybug and dragonfly pose. However, bugs aren't the only animals that the kids have explored! We've also learned about how some snakes in the rainforest can "fly" up to 25 meters through the air from tree to tree. They've also learned the importance of animal conservation through model making of Pandas and the elusive and endangered Rosy Maple Moth.
We hope to see more students next week for our theme of Traveling to the Future, a week filled with learning about new technologies, space travel, time travel and much much more!
