New Perspectives on our Environment
Holistic learning means to use all your senses and explore interdisciplinary links which have the potential to help students make associations between analytical and creative knowledge. Students will thus be encouraged to look at the environment from the point of view of a Renaissance artist/scientist: Where do we find unexpected beauty in our environment? What do we consider aesthetic? Why? What beauty in nature do we tend to overlook?
Students will take a creative approach here. They may write, draw or take pictures. A particularly interesting mini-project could be a MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP in the school garden or the school's close surroundings during which students take close-ups of plants and insects with magnifying filters or lenses.
