Year of the Dragon

Term: 3 Year: 2012

2012 – The Chinese Year of the Dragon made a great starting point for a unit on colour work with the grade 5/6 classes at Altona Primary School.

After investigating the attributes of the Chinese dragon, children were given a range of tools to use in creating their work. Card, honeycomb foil, sponge pieces and whatever mark making materials that were available could be used.

A selection of vibrant colours was also available for the children to use as they wished.
