Coral Reefs made by Johnny, Brandon, Leah, and Emily

At Hannah's Art School, we decided to start up a summer program for kids.  We divided the summer program into 4 separate and themed sessions.  For the first session, the theme was Global Landscape. The students learned about different types of land forms and water forms around the world, and chose to focus on Coral Reefs. We studied about the geological features of the reef, Polyps, Photosynthesis, Ecosystem, types of coral reefs, why and what we can do to help save them. We also discussed questions involving number sequencing, puzzles, verbal anologies, categorizing, and many more! Everyday was filled with critical thinking, Q & As, writing, making, visualizing, drawing, painting, cutting, pasting, presenting, and of course, we did not forget to take a short break with healthy snack in between. We also visited a museum to see an actual Coral Reef, and on the final day, we presented to our parents with two weeks of creation--our own Coral Reef!
