Details: Their understanding of ocean life will be assessed with an oral exam. Art is assessed by the student's creative ability to present it using different media of their choice. They must know what it is from a scientific point of view and explain why they chose to artistically express it with the mediums they chose.
Students should have various art media. The minimum would be 2 sheets of black paper, 3 different color sheets, white paper, color pencils, markers, bottle, glue, acrylic, popsicle stick (or small spatula) or fabric paints (4 different colors). Extras could be cotton balls, chalk, yarn, beads, pompoms of different sizes, playdoh, watercolors, etc.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
