In Mme Nancy’s class, I worked with her students to create a very big mural of the map of Canada. Students got into groups of 2 and each group chose a province to represent. They came up with an image that most describes the provinces they had chosen. Using insulation foam, we cut up their images, primed the foam and they painted it. We put some velcro on the back so that during the concert each image could be placed on the proper province at the appropriate moment.
Myriam Poitras had her music students sing songs that represented every province. While they sang the grade 6 placed their image on the Canada map.
The artwork was then placed permanently in their school after the show. It can be found upstairs in the hall.
