MYP IB Curriculum
Grade: 6
Time: 10 sessions

Inspired by artwork “Whose Values?” by contemporary artist Barbara Kruger, students discussed what a healthy community meant in order to understand how to deal with bullying situations and potentially neutralize them. They designed cardboard signs (layout and message) that later were used to perform a march around the school during recess time. By doing this, students had the opportunity to discuss with other peers about the importance of good attitudes to build a positive environment at school. They also visited different grades to share their message. The activities in this lesson were collaborative brainstorming, discussion about artworks in connection to the main theme, art, and design principles, as well as a typography workshop.  The IB lines of Inquiry incorporated into this lesson plan were:

– Perspective: How do positive/negative attitudes in the school context change us?
– Form: What is a positive/negative attitude towards other classmates?
– Change: How have you experienced negative/positive attitudes in the school context?
