Collaborative Peace

Grade 2

John Lentine, Art Specialist

The book No One Can Ever Steal Your Rainbow by Barbara Meislin is used for inspiration. The students create a “peace” mural by designing their own rainbow on 'puzzle pieces' and assembling into a class mural. Each student writes a wish for the world and the wishes then become part of the art.

  1. discuss a person’s uniqueness and share personal facts in class or small group.
  2. discuss ideas of ways to help the world and write a personal wish.
