Tuesday 12/10/21 – Creative Challenge

Learning Goal: I can be creative with words.

Your challenge for today is to make a song or rap about your favourite thing in your life. If music isn’t your thing maybe you can write a script or a short poem and find a creative way to read it to your family.

First, spend some time thinking about a topic for your song or rap. It could be something which really interests or excites you. It could be about something or someone you really care for. The subject is up to you.

Next, begin creating. There are lots of ways to write a song or rap. You could start by just singing, whatever comes out of your mouth. You could start by just humming or whistling, maybe you have a tune in your head just waiting for some words. You could start by jotting down random words or phrases, again, don’t over think it, just whatever pops into your head.

Now, start to put it all together.

Finally, you might want to record your rap or song. You might want to add a dance and film it! Also, don’t forget to share with your teacher via OneNote.

Learning Goal: I can turn waste into art.

Your challenge for today is to make a recycled art sculpture.

First, spend some time wandering around your house looking for scrap cardboard, used egg cartons, old plastic cups, broken toys, costume jewelry, any piece of waste or used materials that take you eye.

Next, spend some time arranging what you have collected in an interesting way.

Now, come up with a plan for your final sculpture, and then create your master recycled art piece.

Finally, don’t forget to share your picture with your teacher via OneNote.

Learning Goal: I can design a new invention.

Your challenge for today is to design a new invention.

First, think of think of something you think the world really needs right now. It could be a machine that makes some aspect of today’s life easier, or just some that is used for fun.

Next, draw a detailed labelled diagram of your invention.

Then, you may want to build a prototype, or model, of your invention. A prototype doesn’t have to work, it just needs to show what your invention may look like.

Before you start, think about what your invention could do. I’d like a device that will turn red apples into green apples. I prefer green apples. How about a machine that will fold your socks, or one that washes your dog. Or maybe you just want to build a time machine.

Finally, don’t forget to share a picture of your creation with your teacher via OneNote

Next, come up with a way you can display these for your family. Create your own gallery displaying your art and creations.

Finally, don’t forget to share a picture of your art show with your teacher via OneNote
