Art is invaluable to a child’s developmental stages, and is also a sensory learning experience that can develop critical thinking and academic skills. The most effective learning happens when a child does something related to the topic they are learning about. This activity will involve first reading through a book or book(s) about animals (such as butterflies or sea animals), and then taking part in an art, movement, or music activity connected to the book(s). These activities will give an experience of science, math, and reading comprehension in action! Colors mixing, materials attaching and adhering, cause & effect, spatial relations, reading appreciation, properties of materials, patterning, and rhythm!
