Curious how I teach our main lessons for our Waldorf Botany Main Lesson Block? It's actually never the same each time. Sometimes we begin with the written portion, sometimes with the art portion, but more often, it begins with an oral narration on my part or a reading from a 'living' book (refer to Charlotte Mason for explanation on Living Books). While working through lesson 4 of our Botany Main Lesson curriculum, I decided to add an extra art sample to our main lesson books. Today's lesson is how we added a watercolor sample of seaweed to accompany the main lesson block. We chose to watercolor local varieties of seaweed for local significance as well as significance to the curriculum. We watercolored giant sea kelp as we live off the coast of California, and this is a variety we are both familiar with as well as see often when at the beach. I chose watercolors because seaweed grow in water, and I thought the ethereal look of watercolors would complement the ethereal look of seaweed under water. This lesson is about algae with seaweed being a marine algae. We are now exploring plants that represent 'part' of the complete plant with seaweed being a 'leaf' plant with no true roots or flowers or fruit. Seaweed collapses if taken out of the water, yet they are similar to the tall trees in a forest as seaweed often provides a safe haven for other plants and sea animals. Though they have no true roots, they have a holdfast which keeps the seaweed attached to rocks but takes in no nutrients. Those are absorbed throughout the whole plant.

Machallah I'm impressed by the way you teach your kids,have you a diploma of teacher education or it's just like that a simple way to live and study

Teaching by numbers!! Why draw first and then paint-in? Totally UN-Waldorf!

I'm excited to see the finished product. We've always done notebooks and reading journals, but your main lessons books have inspired so many new things for us! I love it! Thank you!

The pastels we use on pastel paper (the paper was from Paper, Scissors and Stone http:/www.waldorfsupplies.com) are usually the Lyra pastels, but for this project we used our chalk pastels from Dick Blick. They are by Sargent Art, and I usually use them on my chalkboard for the chalk drawings.

Nice job. Love how you just said that perhaps an animal just nibbled it (plant in the right) -going with the flow and adapting is a great way to teach the kids to not over perfectionize their work.

I'm so glad you picked up on that and shared it here. Though he's not a perfectionist, I think it helped him because he was feeling put out after putting so much time into the lesson. He's really pleased with it and so am I :) Plus, my sister, who is a talented designer and artist, independently said how much she liked his work, so he was extra pleased.

Thanks Jairy :) We've stopped adding the DK Eyewitness books to our units, and recently gave away a bunch to a homeschooling friend because I was finding them uninspiring, but this one was just perfect for this lesson :)

Hi Hana! I'm always forgetting to ask you. What is the surface you use to put your Tim holtz ink onto? Is it a chopping board or something? Great video by the way. Love the paintings 😊
Pepper and Pine (1 год назад)
Good question...I'm actually not sure, haha. It's similar to a cutting plate for my manual die cutting machine. I think it's just an acrylic plate, but I don't know what the original purpose was.
