LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.

Heart Maps Art Project


This is an Art & English/writing project that I did with a Grade 6 class called "heart maps".
I found the lesson on the Scholastic website HERE

It asks students to create a heart map that expresses the following: 
What’s special in your life? Fill this heart with people, places and memories that are most important to you. Be creative with shapes and sizes.

I bought large pink and white heart doilies from Dollarama. I then printed out a heart shape that fit perfectly inside these doilies. Using the PDF lesson linked above, students could brainstorm and plan their design. Then their good copy on the white heart I provided. 
They used coloured pencils and markers to colour them in.

Here are some finished one!
