Grades 4 – 6: Unit 3 Paint With A Purpose

Review your list of important social issues you’d like to change, from the last unit’s activities, and pick one that you’d like to bring more attention to.   Using paints, crayons or colored pencils, create a buttons, stickers or posters that raises awareness of the issue.  Share your creations with other students to help spread the word.  For example, if your issue was helping the environment, you could create posters that encourage people to recycle and get permission to hang them up all over your school.
