Creating Animoto’s of School Murals Around The World #OurGlobalClassroom

School Murals

This week I would like you to explore school murals around the world. I have found some absolutely amazing murals for you to take a look at and examine the message within the Art Work.

1. Examine what is common about the murals? What do you observe and wonder about the similarities and differences?

2. Find in google murals different than here on the blog and create an Animoto to share your global school murals.

3. If you have time in your Writer’s Notebook design your own mural for our school. Create a slogan (message) to inspire your mural eg Tone Trust Respect

Here are some examples:

    1. Examine what is common about the murals? What do you observe and wonder about the similarities and differences?
    (O) I observe that the similarities that they are very colorful and bright like a rainbow and they also help people and let them explorer there knowledge and also some of the paintings/drawings have greeting words like welcome and hello and all thosse things.(O) I observe that the differences are that some paintings/drawings are on walls and some are on entries I also know that some of the paintings/drawing
    mean different meanings.(W) I wonder when they painted/drawn the pitchers for example if they painted/drawn the pitchers when they built the school or if they did it when the school was already built when the kids went to school.I wonder if they do actully mean something or if it is a symble of something.

    Hi Mrs Joyce,
    (O)I observe that the simililaritis are that they are all based on education and kids having fun at school and kids having fun learning about diffirent things. (O)i can also observe that they are having fun and playing around In the park. (O).I Have also noticed that the pictures all are about life opportunity happiness and education at schoo.

    (W)I wonder if the artest behind the picture was a teacher and thought that they needed some coulur and to get the message through to people that school is a place for opportunity happiness and hope.
    (W) I wonder if any one other than me has been inspired by the pictures and painted something like it on ther walls at school.(although I wasn’t inspired to do it on the walls at school I am just happy doing it on paper.

    1. I observe all of the murals exept one are very brightly couloured and one of the murals is painted on a entrance the rest are painted on walls, I observe that three of the murals are mosaic ( made of tiles ) I observe that most of the murals have school children on them also children from around the world. I wonder what all of the murals slogans are?

    Hi, Mrs Joyce,
    I’m just adding a few questions to my homework!
    I wonder if the students where involved in painting the murals? I wonder why they teachers chose to do mosaic for their murals? I don’t think the mural with all the aliens and stuff has to do with respect and honesty and education stuff. It is hard to think about questions for the murals similarities.
    Emmi, 🙂
