    Great Art in Grade 1

    After teaching art to grade 1 and 2 students at Laurentian Hills Christian School, Caroline van Donkelaar knows that amazing things can happen when students gain a visual vocabulary through which they can understand their art and express themselves.

    Her husband, a practicing artist himself, knows it too. His knowledge and passion for the subject has played a large role in van Donkelaar’s planning this year. Together, the pair has been able to create a number of engaging art activities—many of them focusing on the elements of art—and how those building blocks can help students present their own unique ‘way of seeing’ to others.

    Robots at Woodland

    “What happens in the robotics club is some of the most dynamic learning that I have seen in schools” says John Van Pelt, Principal at Woodland Christian High School. “There are so many aspects of this club that provide opportunity to students. They collaborate in the planning, building, programming, and performance of a robot with a very specific function and they are involved in the fundraising and promotion of the club.”

    Lake Erie in My Glass

    This February, grade 8 students at Dunnville Christian School (DCS) gave a presentation about Lake Erie’s toxic algae bloom for an audience of roughly 200 people, at an environmental awareness event organized by the Dunnville Dream Program. The class was invited to share what they’d learned about the algae bloom by Dr. Kazemi, a member of the organization’s Dream Team, who had been corresponding with the students since their visit to the Dunnville Water Treatment Plant.
