Description

Acknowledge World Environment Day with this meaningful craft based on scenes from the picture book Drought by Jackie French.Students will reflect on the effects of drought as depicted in the story by creating their own drought scene. Foster their imagination by providing a range of materials they can use to create the scene.In addition to detailed instructions, this resource includes a background template, meaningful quotes from the text to illustrate the emotions that drought brings to those affected, and additional pictures, including sheep, a farmhouse and crops that can be added to the landscape.We recommend that the background template be enlarged to A3 and printed on a thick white card. Students add colour and texture to their template with art and craft supplies and items from nature.Before completing this activity, ensure students have read the picture book Drought by Jackie French. We also recommend showing students age-appropriate images of drought-affected landscapes and encouraging discussion related to the effects of drought and how the characters in the story must have felt.If you wish to display your students’ completed art pieces, we recommend printing our World Environment Day banner or poster to hang alongside them. Both of these can be found in our World Environment Day Display PACKAGE.Students will love using their imaginations to create their meaningful World Environment Day art pieces!Don’t forget to check out our World Environment Day: Drought Worksheets that have also been designed to be used after reading Drought by Jackie French.Be sure to check out our other amazing World Environment Day resources suitable for young learners!
