MYP IB Baccalaureate
Theme: Art as Message
Grade: 7
Time: 12 sessions

During this unit, students addressed one of the most important United Nations sustainable development goals: Climate Change. They analyzed the impact of climate change in their homeland, their role as consumers and used art in order to develop a visual response answering the questions of “How are you connected to Nature?” as well as “How does Climate Change affect you?”. They learned how to use Photoshop and created digital collage and double exposure compositions. Other students decided to work with illustration and paper collage. Students also sent a postcard to the United Nations using their statements to reach a wider audience.
