Archimedes once said “Give me a place to stand, and I shall move the Earth.” While the idea of a person moving such a huge mass on their own might sound impossible, chances are you’ve seen this idea in action at your local playground. Andy Peterson and Zack Patterson use the seesaw to illustrate the amazing implications and uses of the lever.
Monet Craft for Kids using your fingers, tempera paint, and masking tape...I love the idea of letting kids paint with their fingers, and appreciate the link to the original work of art included here. I also like the step by step directions, and the biography of the artist. What else could I possibly need?
I like this poem because it shows the idea of using different mediums to teach content. It reminds me on the current even raps that we listened to in class. Because of the rhyme scheme, and the fun nature of this tool, that content that the poem demonstrates is likely to be internalized by the students. It can also be added to my repertoire of transitional songs that create learning opportunities even in the down time.

I always did like to think Art was omnipotent, it doesn't necessarily have to be a sketch or a painting of any kind, it just has to be an experience, a combination of the emotions and hardships that shaped you into what you are now! When life is at its hardest, take the opportunity to learn from it to truly create something beautiful! :D
