FUN FRIDAY: Painting the “ceiling”

Fun doesn’t even begin to describe today’s featured lesson. To give students a better understanding and deeper appreciation for Michaelangelo’s work, teachers at Third Graders, Dreaming Big had students tape thick paper to the underside of their desks. Then these young artists got to crawl underneath, recline, and paint the paper above them.

This lesson should remind us that differentiation or meeting the needs of all learners isn’t just about tiering, cubing, and assessing student levels; it is also about bringing novelty and joy into learning.
