Colourful Continents KS1
Interactive story-telling and optional art workshop
Students will travel to the continents of the world where they will experience the culture of different places through handling objects and clothes. They will become part of the colourful paintings of Asia, Africa, America, the Pacific and Europe when they reenact traditional folk stories in front of Topolski’s giant murals using actions, songs, costumes and props.
Using a colour chart to help them mix secondary colours, students will then illustrate in a huge world map based on the colours they feel best express the continents that they have visited on their travels through the murals.
