Subject

Perseverance

Description

Exploring perseverance is a way for learners to begin thinking critically about what it has taken to survive throughout history and what is needed for them to survive in their everyday lives. It is important for learners to see what is necessary in overcoming adversities and ways for them to not only support their lives but also their communities through the use of tangible and intangible tools. Learners will collaborate with others to create a perseverance garden installation in an approved location that shows their exploration and understanding of perseverance and how it relates to their lives as a group/community. Through this study and art making learners will gain life tools such as leadership, team-building, problem solving and communication. All necessary elements needed to survive and persevere in today’s world.
