Over the past few weeks the children have expressed a desire for pineapple so the obvious next step was to introduce this exotic fruit. This was to serve a dual purpose, both for observational drawing and as fruit tasting experience. Adding some of the fruit we eat at snack we managed to create a beautiful basket. This time instead of paints we introduced a choice of different writing implements, pencils and crayons, therefore the possibility of many colours and diverse textures. By using very open ended questions the teachers discovered what the students were seeing, taking time and giving value to each thought process expressed by the child. The vocabulary used by the students was enlightening, ' Zoe commented that the pineapple, 'It looks like a palm tree, I see them at the beach'. Celeste was very interested in the forms and size of the fruit,' the orange is round but the kiwi is like a squashed round'. This allowed for the language of maths to be incorporated as the teacher and children looked at size, the children were then able to replicate this in their drawings. Nico knowledgeably commented that, 'the orange was bigger, the apple a bit smaller, but the biggest is the pineapple'. Then at the end of the activity, when all of the creational juices were spent the children had a healthy feast!
